Alkimos Golf Statistieken, Herfst: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Alkimos that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8682 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 show increasing swell sizes and biggest 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 was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSE. 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 42% of the time, equivalent to 38 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.7% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 8% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 8%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Alkimos is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Alkimos about 42% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 58% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 38 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.
