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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal February. It is based on 2440 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the most common 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 41% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 3% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 22% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 22%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach about 41% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 42% of the time. This is means that we expect 23 days with waves in a typical February, of which 11 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.
