Statistiques de Houle pour Japs, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Japs that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7266 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, 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 biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NW. 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 51% of the time, equivalent to 46 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Japs is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Japs about 51% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 42% of the time. This is means that we expect 85 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 46 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.
