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

This image shows only the swells directed at Dreamland that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8724 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 illustrates the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSE. 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 65% of the time, equivalent to 59 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.7% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 32% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 32%, equivalent to (29 days). Taking into account the ratio 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 65% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 32% of the time. This is means that we expect 88 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 59 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.
