Statistiques de Houle pour Balangan, Septembre: 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 September and is based upon 2400 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 95% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 2% of the time in a typical September, equivalent to just one day but 62% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 62%, equivalent to (19 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Balangan is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Balangan about 95% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 4% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical September, of which 28 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.
