Kimmeridge Bay Golf Statistieken, November: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Kimmeridge Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal November. It is based on 2387 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 represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the W. 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 1.3% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal November. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kimmeridge Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Kimmeridge Bay about 1.3% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 11 days with waves in a typical November, of which 0 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.
