Carbis Bay Golf Statistieken, Herfst: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Carbis Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8724 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 largest 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, 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 37 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 9% of the time (8 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Carbis Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Carbis Bay about 41% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 61 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 37 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.
