Statistiques de Houle pour Doura, Automne: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Doura that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 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 red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNW. 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 36% of the time, equivalent to 33 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.2% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, 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 fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Doura is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Doura about 36% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 23% of the time. This is means that we expect 54 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 33 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.
