Cap Lopez Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Cap Lopez that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring and is based upon 7252 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 35% of the time, equivalent to 32 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal southern hemisphere spring but 10% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 10%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Cap Lopez is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Cap Lopez about 35% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 32 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.
