Karikari Beach Golf Statistieken, July: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Karikari Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 0.6% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal July. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Karikari Beach is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Karikari Beach about 0.6% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 4 days with waves in a typical July, of which 0 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.
