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

This image shows only the swells directed at Niton that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7765 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 red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 biggest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the W. 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 13 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.7% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Niton is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Niton about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 35 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, 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.
