Estadísticas de Olas para Kuaotunu, marzo: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Kuaotunu that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal March and is based upon 2964 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 represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SE. 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 1.3% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal March. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Kuaotunu is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Kuaotunu about 1.3% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 5% of the time. This is means that we expect 2 days with waves in a typical March, of which 0 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.
