Nicks Point Golf Statistieken, November: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Nicks Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November. It is based on 2867 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 show increasing swell sizes and biggest 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 was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the W. 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 41% of the time, equivalent to 12 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 6% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Nicks Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Nicks Point about 41% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical November, of which 12 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.
