Statistiques de Houle pour Yellowsands Beach, Automne: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yellowsands Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8682 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 shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the N. 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 39% of the time, equivalent to 35 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.0% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 14% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 14%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Yellowsands Beach is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Yellowsands Beach about 39% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 43% of the time. This is means that we expect 75 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 35 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.
