Anglet - Chambre d'Amour Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Anglet - Chambre d'Amour that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8723 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 40 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.7% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 7% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 7%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Anglet - Chambre d'Amour is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Anglet - Chambre d'Amour about 44% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 49% of the time. This is means that we expect 85 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 40 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.
