Statistiques de Houle pour Dolphin Point, Novembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dolphin Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November and is based upon 2867 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 biggest 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 39% of the time, equivalent to 12 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Dolphin Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Dolphin Point about 39% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 46% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical November, of which 12 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.
