Ka'anapali Point Golf Statistieken, February: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Ka'anapali Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal February. It is based on 2102 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the E. 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 56% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 2% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 36% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 36%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ka'anapali Point is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Ka'anapali Point about 56% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 18% of the time. This is means that we expect 21 days with waves in a typical February, of which 16 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.
