Shipwreck Bay-Blue House Swell Statistics, Ottobre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Shipwreck Bay-Blue House that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. 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 46% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 13% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Shipwreck Bay-Blue House is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Shipwreck Bay-Blue House about 46% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 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.
