Estadísticas de Olas para Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point, febrero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February and is based upon 2102 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal February. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ngataki Beach and Paxton Point about 4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical February, of which 1 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.
