Statistiques de Houle pour Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor, Mars: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical March. It is based on 2220 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 either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the dominant 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 7% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast 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 43% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 17% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical March, of which 13 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.
