Kekerengu Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Kekerengu that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 6580 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NNW. 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.9% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Kekerengu is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kekerengu about 18% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 47% of the time. This is means that we expect 59 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 16 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.
