Statistiques de Houle pour Barber's Point - Coast Guard Jetty, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Barber's Point - Coast Guard Jetty 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 illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate 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 frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the dominant 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 2% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere winter. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Barber's Point - Coast Guard Jetty is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Barber's Point - Coast Guard Jetty about 2% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 4% of the time. This is means that we expect 5 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 2 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.
