Statistiques de Houle pour Doolin Point, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Doolin Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter 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 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 represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant 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 20% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.9% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Doolin Point is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Doolin Point about 20% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 77% of the time. This is means that we expect 88 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 18 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.
