Statistiques de Houle pour Kitty Hawk Pier, Juillet: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Kitty Hawk Pier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical July. It is based on 2976 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSW. 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 41% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal July. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kitty Hawk Pier is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kitty Hawk Pier about 41% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical July, of which 13 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.
