Statistiques de Houle pour Carolles, Juillet: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Carolles that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal July. It is based on 2973 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 represent increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 occur in a normal July. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Carolles about 4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 52% of the time. This is means that we expect 17 days with waves in a typical July, 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.
