Baie de Douarnenez Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Baie de Douarnenez that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 34628 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 red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 16% of the time, equivalent to 58 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.8% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Baie de Douarnenez is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Baie de Douarnenez about 16% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 59% of the time. This is means that we expect 274 days with waves in a typical year, of which 58 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
