Aber Wrac'h Point Swell Statistics, Summer: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Aber Wrac'h Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere summer. It is based on 7266 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 35% of the time, equivalent to 32 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.8% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere summer, equivalent to just one day but 9% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 9%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Aber Wrac'h Point about 35% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 58% of the time. This is means that we expect 85 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 32 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.
