Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach Swell Statistics, Dicembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2705 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest 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 longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSE. 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 33% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach about 33% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 21 days with waves in a typical December, of which 10 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.
