Nicks Point Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Nicks Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8724 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 46% of the time, equivalent to 42 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 predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Nicks Point is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Nicks Point about 46% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 52% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 42 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.
