Waikuku Beach Swell Statistics, Summer: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Waikuku Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere summer. It is based on 6931 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NE. 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 12% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal southern hemisphere summer. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Waikuku Beach is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Waikuku Beach about 12% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 33% of the time. This is means that we expect 41 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 11 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.
