Wainui Reef Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Wainui Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 28041 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 28% of the time, equivalent to 102 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.9% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Wainui Reef is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Wainui Reef about 28% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 21% of the time. This is means that we expect 179 days with waves in a typical year, of which 102 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.
