Statistiques de Houle pour Dirk Hartog Island, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dirk Hartog Island that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 34628 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSE. 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 19% of the time, equivalent to 69 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2.0% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Dirk Hartog Island is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Dirk Hartog Island about 19% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 79% of the time. This is means that we expect 358 days with waves in a typical year, of which 69 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.
