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

This image shows only the swells directed at Gills Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8476 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either 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 biggest spokes, was WNW, 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 45% of the time, equivalent to 41 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 12% of the time (11 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Gills Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Gills Bay about 45% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 32% of the time. This is means that we expect 70 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 41 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.
