Statistiques de Houle pour Yport, Printemps: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yport that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 6575 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 either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant 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 33% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.8% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 5% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 5%, equivalent to (5 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Yport is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Yport about 33% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 44 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 30 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.
