Aberffraw Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Aberffraw that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 6930 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. 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 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere winter. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Aberffraw is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Aberffraw about 4% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 53% of the time. This is means that we expect 52 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 4 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.
