Statistiques de Houle pour Doc Browns, Septembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Doc Browns that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September and is based upon 2880 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 shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 1.0% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal September. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Doc Browns is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Doc Browns about 1.0% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 2.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 1 days with waves in a typical September, of which 0 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.
