Statistiques de Houle pour Delaware Bay Point, Automne: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Delaware Bay Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 6989 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 represent increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant 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 2.0% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal southern hemisphere autumn but 1.8% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.8%, equivalent to (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Delaware Bay Point is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Delaware Bay Point about 2.0% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 2 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.
