Please attach small part of your excel-file or data table as MATLAB variable - 'table' in mat -file.

T=readtable('wave height data.xlsx');
[r,rn] = findgroups(T(:,1));
[c,cn] = findgroups(T(:,2));
out = accumarray([r,c],T.WaveHeight,[],@max);
Tout = array2table([rn.Year,out],'VariableNames',[{'Year'};cn.Direction]);

Use logic statements for each criterion. Use logical "AND" (&) to see which elements meet all criteria. Find the max of those values.
Air Code (untested):
idxC1 = (matrix > criterion1);
idxC2 = (matrix < criterion2);
idxOverall = idxC1 & idxC2 & ... & idxCn;
MaxVal = max(matrix(idxOverall));
