Statistiques de Houle pour Aberwystwyth Beach, Janvier: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Aberwystwyth Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January. It is based on 2868 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows the largest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW (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 6% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal January. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Aberwystwyth Beach is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Aberwystwyth Beach about 6% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 37% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical January, of which 2 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
