Statistiques de Houle pour The Bowl, Juillet: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at The Bowl that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical July. It is based on 2976 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 illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 61% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 2% of the time in a typical July, equivalent to just one day but 42% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 42%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that The Bowl is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at The Bowl about 61% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 22% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical July, of which 19 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.
