Statistiques de Houle pour Balangan, Août: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Balangan that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August and is based upon 2480 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 occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 99% of the time, equivalent to 31 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 2% of the time in a typical August, equivalent to just one day but 69% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 69%, equivalent to (21 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Balangan is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Balangan about 99% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 0% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 31 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.
