Statistiques de Houle pour Kaka Point, Été: 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 summer and is based upon 7765 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 represent increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. 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 largest spokes, was S, whereas the the most common 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 36% of the time, equivalent to 33 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.8% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere summer, equivalent to just one day but 8% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 8%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast 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 36% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 57 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 33 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.
