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

This image shows only the swells directed at Kaka Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere spring and is based upon 8476 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 represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 42% of the time, equivalent to 38 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Kaka Point is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Kaka Point about 42% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 61 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 38 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.
