Natadola Beach Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Natadola Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8738 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 largest spokes, was S, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 62% of the time, equivalent to 56 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal southern hemisphere winter but 16% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 16%, equivalent to (15 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Natadola Beach is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Natadola Beach about 62% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 37% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 56 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.
