Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point Swell Statistics, Março: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal March. It is based on 2716 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal March. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point about 4% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 19% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical March, of which 1 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.
