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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Egmond aan Zee that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 6566 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 8% of the time, equivalent to 7 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere spring. 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 8% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 31% of the time. This is means that we expect 35 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 7 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
