Kahalu'u Beach Park Golf Statistieken, September: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Kahalu'u Beach Park that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September. It is based on 2400 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 red illustrates biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 26% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal September. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Kahalu'u Beach Park is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kahalu'u Beach Park about 26% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical September, of which 8 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.
