Statistiques de Houle pour Schnappers Point, Mars: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Schnappers Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal March. It is based on 2220 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 10% of the time, equivalent to 3 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal March. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Schnappers Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Schnappers Point about 10% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 11 days with waves in a typical March, of which 3 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.
