Statistiques de Houle pour Drive by right (Fonua one one), Janvier: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Drive by right (Fonua one one) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January. It is based on 2620 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ENE. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal January. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Drive by right (Fonua one one) is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Drive by right (Fonua one one) about 5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 8 days with waves in a typical January, of which 2 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.
