Baylys Beach Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Baylys Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7200 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 show increasing swell sizes and biggest 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 happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the prevailing wind direction). 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 27% of the time, equivalent to 25 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.3% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day but 14% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 14%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Baylys Beach is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Baylys Beach about 27% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 68% of the time. This is means that we expect 86 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 25 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.
