Arniston Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Arniston 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 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 represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 34% of the time, equivalent to 31 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 9% of the time (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Arniston is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Arniston about 34% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 77 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 31 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.
