Anglet - La Piscine Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Anglet - La Piscine that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 8475 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red represents highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the dominant 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 37% of the time, equivalent to 34 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere autumn 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 proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Anglet - La Piscine is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Anglet - La Piscine about 37% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 53% of the time. This is means that we expect 82 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 34 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.
