Egmond aan Zee Swell Statistics, Maio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Egmond aan Zee that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2197 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNW. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 9% of the time, equivalent to 3 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal May. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Egmond aan Zee is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Egmond aan Zee about 9% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 30% of the time. This is means that we expect 12 days with waves in a typical May, of which 3 days should be surfable.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
