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

This image shows only the swells directed at Carskiey Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 7012 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 red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SW. 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 0.6% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.6% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 3% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 3%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Carskiey Bay is very sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Carskiey Bay about 0.6% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 0.4% of the time. This is means that we expect 1 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 1 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.
