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

This image shows only the swells directed at Katwijk aan Zee that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2693 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 red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the dominant 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 3% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal May. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Katwijk aan Zee is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Katwijk aan Zee about 3% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 34% of the time. This is means that we expect 11 days with waves in a typical May, of which 1 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.
