Aberdaron Golf Statistieken, May: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Aberdaron that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2835 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 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 frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the dominant 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 0.4% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal May. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Aberdaron is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Aberdaron about 0.4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 5 days with waves in a typical May, of which 0 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.
