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 and is based upon 7251 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing 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 32% of the time, equivalent to 29 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Karramarro is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Karramarro about 32% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 22% of the time. This is means that we expect 49 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 29 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.
