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

This image shows only the swells directed at Machrihanish that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 5491 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 red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, 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 longest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SW. 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 9% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere winter. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Machrihanish is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Machrihanish about 9% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 58% of the time. This is means that we expect 61 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 8 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.
