Antigues Cape Swell Statistics, Gennaio: 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 January and is based upon 2620 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NE, whereas the the dominant 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 97% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal January but 41% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 41%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds we calculate that clean surf can be found at Antigues Cape about 97% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 1.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical January, of which 30 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.
