Statistiques de Houle pour Noordhoek, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Noordhoek that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8738 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 red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 46% of the time, equivalent to 42 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 13% of the time (12 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Noordhoek is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Noordhoek about 46% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 52% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 42 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.
