Ka'anapali Point Golf Statistieken, January: 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 January. It is based on 2868 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 shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

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 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 57% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 4% of the time in a typical January, equivalent to just one day but 36% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 36%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ka'anapali Point is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ka'anapali Point about 57% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 22% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical January, of which 18 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.
