Statistiques de Houle pour Double Island Point - North Coast, Printemps: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Double Island Point - North Coast that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was ESE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ENE. 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 14% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.1% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 13% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 13%, equivalent to (12 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Double Island Point - North Coast is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Double Island Point - North Coast about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 6% of the time. This is means that we expect 18 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 13 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.
