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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Shipwreck Bay-Supertubes 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 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 shows the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common 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 41% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 13% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Shipwreck Bay-Supertubes is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Shipwreck Bay-Supertubes about 41% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 38% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical October, of which 13 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.
