Statistiques de Houle pour Inchydoney, Décembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Inchydoney that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2705 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 show increasing swell sizes and biggest 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 most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.7% of the time in a typical December, equivalent to just one day. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Inchydoney is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Inchydoney about 4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 45% of the time. This is means that we expect 15 days with waves in a typical December, of which 1 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.
