Anglet - La Barre Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Anglet - La Barre that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 34626 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 often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW (which was the same as the prevailing wind direction). 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 14% of the time, equivalent to 51 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.3% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 4% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 4%, equivalent to (15 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Anglet - La Barre is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Anglet - La Barre about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 37% of the time. This is means that we expect 186 days with waves in a typical year, of which 51 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.
