Statistiques de Houle pour Yellowsands Beach, Juillet: 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 July. It is based on 2480 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was S, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NW. 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 47% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.8% of the time in a typical July, equivalent to just one day but 22% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 22%, equivalent to (7 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 estimate that clean surf can be found at Yellowsands Beach about 47% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 34% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical July, of which 15 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.
