Statistiques de Houle pour Nicks Point, Été: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Nicks 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the W. 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 40% of the time, equivalent to 36 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 3% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Nicks Point is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Nicks Point about 40% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 56% of the time. This is means that we expect 87 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 36 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.
