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

The rose diagram 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 6580 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 frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest 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 38% of the time, equivalent to 35 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.2% 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 ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Yellowsands Beach is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Yellowsands Beach about 38% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 44% 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.
