Statistiques de Houle pour Aberdaron, Février: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Aberdaron that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2101 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the dominant 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 1.3% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal February. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Aberdaron is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Aberdaron about 1.3% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 33% of the time. This is means that we expect 10 days with waves in a typical February, of which 0 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.
