Ko Olina Resort Swell Statistics, Luglio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ko Olina Resort that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal July and is based upon 2480 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 represent 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 was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal July but 29% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 29%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ko Olina Resort is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ko Olina Resort about 31% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 0% of the time. This is means that we expect 10 days with waves in a typical July, of which 10 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.
