Kelps Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Kelps that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 7252 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 shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each 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 biggest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the dominant wind direction). 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 28% of the time, equivalent to 25 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kelps is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kelps about 28% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 72% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 25 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.
