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

This image shows only the swells directed at Magillian Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 6931 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the most common 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 25% of the time, equivalent to 23 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Magillian Point is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Magillian Point about 25% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 34% of the time. This is means that we expect 54 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 23 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.
