Kenfig Sands Swell Statistics, Dicembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Kenfig Sands that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2457 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the prevailing wind direction). 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 12% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal December. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Kenfig Sands is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Kenfig Sands about 12% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 68% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical December, of which 4 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.
