Statistiques de Houle pour Yellow Rock Reef, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yellow Rock Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 28044 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the E. 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. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 0.8% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 0.8%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Yellow Rock Reef is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Yellow Rock Reef about 9% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 90% of the time. This is means that we expect 361 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.
