Statistiques de Houle pour Dreamland, Août: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dreamland that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August. It is based on 2976 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red represents highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 99% of the time, equivalent to 31 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.9% of the time in a typical August, equivalent to just one day but 67% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 67%, equivalent to (21 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Dreamland is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Dreamland about 99% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 0% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 31 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.
