Estadísticas de Olas para Inskip Point, diciembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Inskip Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2953 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was ENE (which was the same as the prevailing wind direction). 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal December. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Inskip Point is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Inskip Point about 4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 18 days with waves in a typical December, of which 1 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.
