Statistiques de Houle pour Back Beach, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Back Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7266 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 red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ENE. 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 42% of the time, equivalent to 38 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 10% of the time (9 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Back Beach is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Back Beach about 42% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 38 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.
