Statistiques de Houle pour Awatoto Rivermouth, Décembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Awatoto Rivermouth that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December and is based upon 2705 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each 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 ESE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNE. 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 26% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal December. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Awatoto Rivermouth is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Awatoto Rivermouth about 26% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 38% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical December, of which 8 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.
