Cap Frehel Swell Statistics, Aprile: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Cap Frehel that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical April. It is based on 2637 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the N. 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 5 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal April. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Cap Frehel is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Cap Frehel about 16% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 45% of the time. This is means that we expect 18 days with waves in a typical April, of which 5 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.
