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

This image shows only the swells directed at Aberdaron that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2197 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the most common 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 0.5% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal May. 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 0.5% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 16% of the time. This is means that we expect 5 days with waves in a typical May, 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.
