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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Backyards that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 6931 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 the 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 most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant 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 30% of the time, equivalent to 27 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 6% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Backyards is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Backyards about 30% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 46% of the time. This is means that we expect 69 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 27 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.
