Statistiques de Houle pour Jakes, Été: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Jakes that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere summer and is based upon 6931 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the S. 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 76% of the time, equivalent to 69 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.6% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere summer, equivalent to just one day but 30% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 30%, equivalent to (27 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Jakes is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Jakes about 76% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 23% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 69 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.
