Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7765 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 represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest 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 52% of the time, equivalent to 47 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 13% of the time (12 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor about 52% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 24% of the time. This is means that we expect 69 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 47 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.
