Statistiques de Houle pour Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point, Septembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September. It is based on 2400 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 shows the biggest 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 longest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. 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 2% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point about 2% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 14% of the time. This is means that we expect 5 days with waves in a typical September, of which 1 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.
