Takou Bay Swell Statistics, Ottobre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Takou Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical October. It is based on 2975 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 represent 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 often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the W. 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 34% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal October. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Takou Bay is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Takou Bay about 34% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical October, of which 11 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.
