Statistiques de Houle pour Impossibles, Automne: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Impossibles that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8682 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 represent increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates 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 72% of the time, equivalent to 66 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal southern hemisphere autumn but 27% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 27%, equivalent to (25 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Impossibles is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Impossibles about 72% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 18% of the time. This is means that we expect 82 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 66 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.
