Cabo Roche Golf Statistieken, September: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Cabo Roche that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal September. It is based on 2396 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 red illustrates biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W (which was the same as the prevailing 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 8% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal September. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Cabo Roche is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Cabo Roche about 8% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 14% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical September, of which 2 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.
