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 8476 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. 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 was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing 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 67% of the time, equivalent to 61 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.7% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 33% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 33%, equivalent to (30 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast 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 67% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 30% of the time. This is means that we expect 88 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 61 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.
