Apollo Bay Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Apollo Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8738 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, 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 longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 58% of the time, equivalent to 53 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 27% of the time (25 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Apollo Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Apollo Bay about 58% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 53 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.
