Wijk aan Zee Noordpier Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Wijk aan Zee Noordpier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 27979 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WSW. 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 6% of the time, equivalent to 22 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Wijk aan Zee Noordpier is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Wijk aan Zee Noordpier about 6% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 34% of the time. This is means that we expect 146 days with waves in a typical year, of which 22 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.
