Statistiques de Houle pour Dreamland, Juillet: 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 July. 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 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing 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 97% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal July but 69% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 69%, equivalent to (21 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Dreamland is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Dreamland about 97% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 2.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical July, of which 30 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.
