Statistiques de Houle pour Druridge Bay, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Druridge Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 33206 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 7% of the time, equivalent to 26 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 1.7% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.7%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Druridge Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Druridge Bay about 7% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 13% of the time. This is means that we expect 73 days with waves in a typical year, of which 26 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.
