Hi Darko, this happens in real life as well. Presently our local lake is lower than usual. This results in irregular wind but also less chops/withecaps that you would expect for similar windspeed. Last month we had several weekends with 18+ Knts where water remained strangely quiet, apart from occasional 25+ periods. Everyone was planing, sometimes in survival mode. I guess it can happen at sea by offshore wind, low tide... Now I don't think magazines purposedly select such conditions to promote/claim planing in next to no wind.
