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

This image shows only the swells directed at Cap Sim that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical July. It is based on 2480 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 represent 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 commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the prevailing 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 92% of the time, equivalent to 29 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal July but 27% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 27%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast 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 92% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 4% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical July, of which 29 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.
