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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Awatoto Rivermouth that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January and is based upon 2372 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest 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 29% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal January. 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 29% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 37% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical January, of which 9 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.
