Ka'anapali Point Swell Statistics, All Year: 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 over a normal year. It is based on 33220 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows largest 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 most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, 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 32% of the time, equivalent to 117 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.8% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast 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 32% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 6% of the time. This is means that we expect 139 days with waves in a typical year, of which 117 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.
