Eaglehawk Neck Reef Golf Statistieken, November: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Eaglehawk Neck Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal November. It is based on 1200 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was ENE, 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 8% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal November. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Eaglehawk Neck Reef is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Eaglehawk Neck Reef about 8% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 9% of the time. This is means that we expect 5 days with waves in a typical November, of which 2 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.
