Statistiques de Houle pour Taits Beach (Waikari River), Octobre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Taits Beach (Waikari River) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical October. It is based on 2973 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 frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 21% of the time, equivalent to 7 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal October. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Taits Beach (Waikari River) is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Taits Beach (Waikari River) about 21% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 23% of the time. This is means that we expect 14 days with waves in a typical October, of which 7 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.
