Estadísticas de Olas para Gills Bay, Primavera: 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 spring. It is based on 8052 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WNW, 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 38% of the time, equivalent to 35 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 9% of the time (8 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Gills Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Gills Bay about 38% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 32% of the time. This is means that we expect 64 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 35 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.
