Aligator Rock Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Aligator Rock that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 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 show increasing swell sizes and highest 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 occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the E. 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 38% of the time, equivalent to 139 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (18 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Aligator Rock is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Aligator Rock about 38% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 8% of the time. This is means that we expect 168 days with waves in a typical year, of which 139 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
