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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Boneyards that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical October. It is based on 2976 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 4% of the time in a typical October, equivalent to just one day but 30% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 30%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Boneyards is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Boneyards about 43% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical October, of which 13 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.
