Statistiques de Houle pour Armadale Bay, Décembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Armadale Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2457 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. 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) 12% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Armadale Bay is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Armadale Bay about 41% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 50% of the time. This is means that we expect 27 days with waves in a typical December, 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.
