Statistiques de Houle pour D Country, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at D Country that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 33212 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was E, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SE. 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 25% of the time, equivalent to 91 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 1.4% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.4%, equivalent to (5 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds we estimate that clean surf can be found at D Country about 25% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 56% of the time. This is means that we expect 296 days with waves in a typical year, of which 91 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.
