Statistiques de Houle pour Nigg Bay, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Nigg Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 28040 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SE, 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 14% of the time, equivalent to 51 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 1.6% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.6%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Nigg Bay is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Nigg Bay about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 31% of the time. This is means that we expect 164 days with waves in a typical year, of which 51 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.
