Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8682 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ENE. 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 40% of the time, equivalent to 36 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor about 40% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 47 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 36 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.
