Statistiques de Houle pour Donkin Bay, Été: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Donkin Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere summer and is based upon 7765 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 20 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.9% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere summer, equivalent to just one day but 10% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 10%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Donkin Bay is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Donkin Bay about 22% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 77% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 20 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.
