Day of the Month
These graphs show the maximum, minimum and average swell recorded on each day of the month over the last ten years. So the red part of the graph is the largest swell recorded on that day over ten years, the blue the smallest and the green bit is the average of all data on that day. This gives some idea of the range of possible swells and the variation over the month.
