Statistiques de Houle pour K59 and 61, Printemps: 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 over a normal northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8052 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 62% of the time, equivalent to 56 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere spring but 24% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 24%, equivalent to (22 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that K59 and 61 is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at K59 and 61 about 62% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 38% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 56 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.
