Ehukai/Gums Swell Statistics, Gennaio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ehukai/Gums that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January. It is based on 2372 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the E. 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 49% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 16% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ehukai/Gums is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ehukai/Gums about 49% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical January, of which 15 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.
