Ile de Noirmoutier Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ile de Noirmoutier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 28044 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 25% of the time, equivalent to 91 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 1.2% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.2%, equivalent to (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ile de Noirmoutier is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ile de Noirmoutier about 25% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 64% of the time. This is means that we expect 325 days with waves in a typical year, of which 91 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.
