Cap Sim Golf Statistieken, Zomer: 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 northern hemisphere summer and is based upon 7266 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, 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 88% of the time, equivalent to 80 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere summer but 24% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 24%, equivalent to (22 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 calculate that clean surf can be found at Cap Sim about 88% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 10% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 80 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.
