Statistiques de Houle pour Kairaki Beach, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Kairaki Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 34628 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 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 happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNW. 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 95 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 1.9% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.9%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kairaki Beach is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Kairaki Beach about 26% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 193 days with waves in a typical year, of which 95 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.
