Statistiques de Houle pour Downend Point, Mai: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Downend Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2696 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 illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W (which was the same as the dominant 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 26% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal May. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Downend Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Downend Point about 26% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 59% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical May, of which 8 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.
