Statistiques de Houle pour IIbarritz, Hiver: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at IIbarritz that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 8485 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 represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, 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 WNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSW. 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 39 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.9% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds we calculate that clean surf can be found at IIbarritz about 43% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 86 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 39 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.
