Statistiques de Houle pour Yellowcraig Beach, Décembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yellowcraig Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December and is based upon 2455 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was ESE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WSW. 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 7% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal December. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Yellowcraig Beach is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Yellowcraig Beach about 7% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 7% of the time. This is means that we expect 4 days with waves in a typical December, of which 2 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.
