Anse de Vauville Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Anse de Vauville that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 6576 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the NW. 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere spring. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Anse de Vauville is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Anse de Vauville about 4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 24% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 4 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.
