Statistiques de Houle pour Niton, Toute l'Année: 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 year. It is based on 28041 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing 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 9% of the time, equivalent to 33 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.6% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio 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 9% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 88 days with waves in a typical year, of which 33 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.
