Estadísticas de Olas para Bantham, Todo el Año: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Bantham that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 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 shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the W. 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 13% of the time, equivalent to 47 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal year but 0.7% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 0.7%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Bantham is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Bantham about 13% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 61% of the time. This is means that we expect 270 days with waves in a typical year, of which 47 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.
