Estadísticas de Olas para Airport Lefts, Invierno: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Airport Lefts that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere winter and is based upon 8738 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 represent increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 99% of the time, equivalent to 90 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.3% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day but 66% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 66%, equivalent to (60 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Airport Lefts is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Airport Lefts about 99% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 0% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 90 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.
