Estadísticas de Olas para Goat Island Reef, septiembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Goat Island Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal September and is based upon 2400 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 red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WNW. 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 0.2% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal September. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Goat Island Reef is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Goat Island Reef about 0.2% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 3% of the time. This is means that we expect 1 days with waves in a typical September, 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.
