Statistiques de Houle pour Dalmeny Point, Mai: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dalmeny Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May. It is based on 2838 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the W. 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 46% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.9% of the time in a typical May, equivalent to just one day but 11% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 11%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Dalmeny Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Dalmeny Point about 46% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 30% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical May, of which 14 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.
