(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor, located 39 km away (24 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each January) and blows offshore 51% of the time (16 days in an average January). Over an average January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Banzai Pipeline and Backdoor
