Estadísticas de Olas para Gas Bay, Otoño: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Gas Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 6580 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SSE. 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 40 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 10% of the time (9 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Gas Bay is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Gas Bay about 44% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 40 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.
