King Edwards Bay Golf Statistieken, April: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at King Edwards Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal April. It is based on 1842 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 shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal April. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that King Edwards Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at King Edwards Bay about 5% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 13% of the time. This is means that we expect 5 days with waves in a typical April, of which 2 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.
