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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Yzerfontein that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical 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 show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the prevailing 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 33% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 7% of the time (6 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Yzerfontein is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Yzerfontein about 33% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 30 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.
