Whipsiderry Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Whipsiderry that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 6931 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 17% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.9% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Whipsiderry is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Whipsiderry about 17% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 75 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 15 days should be surfable.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
