Statistiques de Houle pour Dana Point, Février: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Dana Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal February. It is based on 2440 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WNW. 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 52% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal February. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds we estimate that clean surf can be found at Dana Point about 52% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 41% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical February, of which 15 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.
