Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point Swell Statistics, All Year: 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 through a typical year. It is based on 34628 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NE, whereas the the most common 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 3% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 1.8% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.8%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point about 3% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 55 days with waves in a typical year, of which 11 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.
