Anse Gaulette Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Anse Gaulette that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8052 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. 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 happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 40% of the time, equivalent to 36 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise 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 Anse Gaulette is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Anse Gaulette about 40% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 88 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 36 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.
