Aurora Point Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Aurora Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 34628 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was E, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 66 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.0% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Aurora Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Aurora Point about 18% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 35% of the time. This is means that we expect 193 days with waves in a typical year, of which 66 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.
