Statistiques de Houle pour Isle of Palms Pier, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Isle of Palms Pier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 34628 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 red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SE, 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 21% of the time, equivalent to 77 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal year but 1.6% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.6%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Isle of Palms Pier is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Isle of Palms Pier about 21% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 53% of the time. This is means that we expect 270 days with waves in a typical year, of which 77 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.
