Statistiques de Houle pour Dinner Plates, Printemps: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dinner Plates that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8724 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 commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.8% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 12% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 12%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Dinner Plates is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Dinner Plates about 31% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 59% of the time. This is means that we expect 82 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 28 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
