Nahoon Reef Golf Statistieken, Herfst: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Nahoon Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8682 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 29% of the time, equivalent to 26 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.7% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 10% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 10%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Nahoon Reef is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Nahoon Reef about 29% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 59 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 26 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
