Statistiques de Houle pour Deadman's, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Deadman's that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 8485 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 shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NW. 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 12% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Deadman's about 12% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 23% of the time. This is means that we expect 32 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 11 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.
