Statistiques de Houle pour Doheney Beach, Automne: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Doheney Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn. 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 illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 40 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Doheney Beach is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Doheney Beach about 44% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 30% of the time. This is means that we expect 67 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 40 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.
