Augusta Rivermouth Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Augusta Rivermouth 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 illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the S. 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 7% of the time, equivalent to 26 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Augusta Rivermouth is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Augusta Rivermouth about 7% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 120 days with waves in a typical year, of which 26 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.
