Waimea Bay/Pinballs Swell Statistics, Abril: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Waimea Bay/Pinballs that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical April and is based upon 2160 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the dominant 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 36% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal April but 28% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 28%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Waimea Bay/Pinballs is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Waimea Bay/Pinballs about 36% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 9% of the time. This is means that we expect 14 days with waves in a typical April, of which 11 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.
