Statistiques de Houle pour Noordhoek, Toute l'Année: 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 year and is based upon 34628 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSW. 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 59% of the time, equivalent to 215 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 10% of the time (36 days). Taking into account the ratio 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 59% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 35% of the time. This is means that we expect 343 days with waves in a typical year, of which 215 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
