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

The rose diagram 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 and is based upon 8476 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was ESE, whereas the the most common 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 arise 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 ratio 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 estimate that clean surf can be found at Double Island Point - North Coast about 14% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 5% of the time. This is means that we expect 17 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.
