Anglet - Corsaires Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Anglet - Corsaires that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 33202 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents the largest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WNW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 34% of the time, equivalent to 124 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.2% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 4% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 4%, equivalent to (15 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Anglet - Corsaires is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Anglet - Corsaires about 34% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 332 days with waves in a typical year, of which 124 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.
