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 over a normal southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7266 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 illustrate 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 commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies 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 27% of the time, equivalent to 25 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 3% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Zinkwazi is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Zinkwazi about 27% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 35% of the time. This is means that we expect 56 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 25 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.
