Estadísticas de Olas para Whitesand Bay, enero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Whitesand Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January. It is based on 2868 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the most common 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal January. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Whitesand Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Whitesand Bay about 5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical January, of which 2 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.
