Kaituna Cut Golf Statistieken, March: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Kaituna Cut that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal March and is based upon 2716 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 red represents biggest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ENE. 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 27% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal March. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kaituna Cut is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kaituna Cut about 27% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 47% of the time. This is means that we expect 23 days with waves in a typical March, of which 8 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.
