Antigues Cape Swell Statistics, Febbraio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Antigues Cape that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2664 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the E. 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 94% of the time, equivalent to 26 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal February but 38% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 38%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds we calculate that clean surf can be found at Antigues Cape about 94% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 3% of the time. This is means that we expect 27 days with waves in a typical February, of which 26 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.
