Karramarro Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Karramarro that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8475 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 4% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Karramarro is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Karramarro about 31% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 23% of the time. This is means that we expect 49 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 28 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.
