Aligator Rock Golf Statistieken, December: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Aligator Rock that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December. It is based on 2705 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the E. 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 53% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 12% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Aligator Rock is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Aligator Rock about 53% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical December, of which 16 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.
