Statistiques de Houle pour K59 and 61, Août: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at K59 and 61 that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August and is based upon 2976 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 occurs.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the E. 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 60% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal August but 37% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 37%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that K59 and 61 is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at K59 and 61 about 60% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 19 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.
