Ka'anapali Point Swell Statistics, Gennaio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ka'anapali Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January. It is based on 2620 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 NW, whereas the the prevailing 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 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 calculate that clean surf can be found at Ka'anapali Point about 57% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 24% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical January, of which 18 days should be surfable.

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.
