Estadísticas de Olas para Doonbeg Castle, Otoño: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Doonbeg Castle that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 3672 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common 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 15% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 15% of the time (14 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Doonbeg Castle is very sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Doonbeg Castle about 15% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 3% of the time. This is means that we expect 16 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 14 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
