Statistiques de Houle pour Kewalos, Novembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Kewalos that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November. It is based on 2809 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was S, 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 7% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal November. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kewalos is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Kewalos about 7% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 8% of the time. This is means that we expect 4 days with waves in a typical November, of which 2 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.
