Statistiques de Houle pour Ntylonyane (Breezy Point), Mai: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ntylonyane (Breezy Point) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May and is based upon 2696 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was S, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NW. 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 2% of the time in a typical May, equivalent to just one day but 18% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 18%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ntylonyane (Breezy Point) is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ntylonyane (Breezy Point) about 44% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 35% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical May, of which 14 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.
