Statistiques de Houle pour Jongensfontein, Printemps: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Jongensfontein that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 7252 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 23% of the time, equivalent to 21 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.9% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Jongensfontein is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Jongensfontein about 23% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 64% of the time. This is means that we expect 79 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 21 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.
