Estadísticas de Olas para Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor, diciembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2457 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the 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 biggest spokes, was NNW, 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 51% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 12% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the ratio 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 calculate that clean surf can be found at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor about 51% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 14% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical December, of which 15 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.
