Statistiques de Houle pour Balangan, Juillet: 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 July. It is based on 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 show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 98% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.7% of the time in a typical July, 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 proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Balangan is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Balangan about 98% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 1.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical July, of which 30 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.
