Anson Bay Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Anson Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 80 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.6% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Anson Bay is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Anson Bay about 22% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 43% of the time. This is means that we expect 237 days with waves in a typical year, of which 80 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.
