Evans Head-Airforce Beach Golf Statistieken, November: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Evans Head-Airforce Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November and is based upon 2867 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was E, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ENE. 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 12% of the time, equivalent to 4 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 Evans Head-Airforce Beach is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Evans Head-Airforce Beach about 12% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 52% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical November, of which 4 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.
