Cap Sim Golf Statistieken, April: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Cap Sim that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal April and is based upon 2160 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, 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 NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the N. 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 72% of the time, equivalent to 22 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal April but 30% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 30%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Cap Sim is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Cap Sim about 72% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical April, of which 22 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.
