Carbis Bay Swell Statistics, Dicembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Carbis Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December and is based upon 2705 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. 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 49% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 22% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Carbis Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Carbis Bay about 49% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 29% of the time. This is means that we expect 23 days with waves in a typical December, of which 15 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.
