Beacons Swell Statistics, Novembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Beacons that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November. It is based on 2793 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 red illustrates biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). 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 largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NW. 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 41% of the time, equivalent to 12 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal November. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Beacons is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Beacons about 41% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical November, of which 12 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.
