Statistiques de Houle pour Number Threes, Été: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Number Threes that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere summer and is based upon 8738 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ENE. 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 26% of the time, equivalent to 24 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere summer but 9% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 9%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Number Threes is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Number Threes about 26% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 46% of the time. This is means that we expect 66 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 24 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.
