Anaehoomalu Bay_A-Bay Golf Statistieken, November: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden
This image shows only the swells directed at Anaehoomalu Bay_A-Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal November. It is based on 2387 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.
The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNE. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal November. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Anaehoomalu Bay_A-Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Anaehoomalu Bay_A-Bay about 5% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 6% of the time. This is means that we expect 3 days with waves in a typical November, of which 2 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.
