Statistiques de Houle pour Dee Why Point, Été: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Dee Why Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere summer. It is based on 8485 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the E. 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 21% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.3% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere summer, equivalent to just one day but 11% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 11%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Dee Why Point is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Dee Why Point about 21% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 19 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
