Statistiques de Houle pour Neah Bay, Printemps: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Neah Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 6580 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 illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 longest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant 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 21% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 4% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Neah Bay is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Neah Bay about 21% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 37 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, 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.
