Boneyards Swell Statistics, Ottobre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Boneyards that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal October. It is based on 2480 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 4% of the time in a typical October, equivalent to just one day but 31% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 31%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Boneyards is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Boneyards about 44% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 33% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical October, of which 14 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.
