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

This image shows only the swells directed at Gileston that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 7250 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 shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant 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 0.3% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Gileston is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Gileston about 0.3% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 14% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, 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.
