Can anyone shed some light for me on how to interpret wind guru to determine if shore diving in any one particular area, i.e., north or south of downtown, would have less surf at entry/exit points given the stated conditions? I admit that I am no meteorologist, but the tables look all "Greek" to me. Thanks!

I doubt that the resolution and accuracy of Wind Guru allow one with any validity to distinguish between the subtleties of north or south of downtown. Maybe between east cost and west coast....

Lori..Perhaps my use of the info is an oversimplification but as a general rule...

Thank you so much, Vince, for giving me some idea of how to interpret the Wind Guru charts. We will be on the island for two weeks this month and armed with this knowledge, will see if we can make heads or tails out of the data.

On Bonaire you mainly use windguru for East Coast diving. If there are 8ft waves at the East Coast they still tend to be zero ft at the West Coast.

I'll also use wind guru in my decision to dive the lighthouse or North @ Karpata and Beyond to Taylor Made more specifically. A particular strong wind out of the east will blow parallel on those southward facing shores and make for a challenging entry. My cut-off is anything over a 1 star rating.
