Aganoa Beach Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Aganoa Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8682 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the most common wind blows from the ENE. 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 20 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal southern hemisphere autumn but 14% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 14%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Aganoa Beach is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Aganoa Beach about 22% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 54% of the time. This is means that we expect 69 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 20 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.
