Koeel Bay Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Koeel Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7266 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WNW. 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 35% of the time, equivalent to 32 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Koeel Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Koeel Bay about 35% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 41% of the time. This is means that we expect 69 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 32 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.
