Alexandra Headland Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Alexandra Headland that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 33204 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 red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SE (which was the same as the prevailing wind direction). 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 20% of the time, equivalent to 73 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.5% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Alexandra Headland is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Alexandra Headland about 20% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 310 days with waves in a typical year, of which 73 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.
