Waiheke Island Swell Statistics, All Year: 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 year and is based upon 28042 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 shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal year but 1.3% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.3%, equivalent to (5 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Waiheke Island is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Waiheke Island about 0.4% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 4% of the time. This is means that we expect 15 days with waves in a typical year, 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.
