Noordhoek Swell Statistics, Summer: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Noordhoek that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere summer. It is based on 7765 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, 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 biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 69% of the time, equivalent to 63 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Noordhoek is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Noordhoek about 69% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 21% of the time. This is means that we expect 82 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 63 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.
