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

This image shows only the swells directed at Zinkwazi 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, 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 biggest 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 25% of the time, equivalent to 23 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Zinkwazi is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Zinkwazi about 25% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 56 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 23 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.
