Atins Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Atins that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNE, whereas the the dominant 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 11% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal southern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Atins is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Atins about 11% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 81% of the time. This is means that we expect 84 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 10 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.
