Statistiques de Houle pour Yo Yo's-The Wedge, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yo Yo's-The Wedge 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 illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSE. 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 54% of the time, equivalent to 197 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 14% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 14%, equivalent to (51 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Yo Yo's-The Wedge is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Yo Yo's-The Wedge about 54% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 46% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, of which 197 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.
