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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Gills Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical October. It is based on 2480 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 represent increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 10% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted 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 43% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 31% of the time. This is means that we expect 23 days with waves in a typical October, of which 13 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.
