Egmond aan Zee Swell Statistics, Aprile: 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 through a typical April. It is based on 2151 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 red represents highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the N. 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 arise in a normal April. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted 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 messed up by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 11 days with waves in a typical April, of which 3 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.
