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

This image shows only the swells directed at Waiheke Island that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 33258 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing 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 1.2% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.2%, equivalent to (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted 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 spoilt by onshore wind 3% of the time. This is means that we expect 11 days with waves in a typical year, of which 1 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.
