Waiheke Island Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Waiheke Island that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8476 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the W. 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 0.4% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal southern hemisphere spring. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Waiheke Island is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Waiheke Island about 0.4% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 3% of the time. This is means that we expect 3 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 0 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.
