Statistiques de Houle pour Yzerfontein, Printemps: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yzerfontein that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8476 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Yzerfontein is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Yzerfontein about 18% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 78% of the time. This is means that we expect 87 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 16 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.
