Egmond aan Zee Swell Statistics, Novembre: 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 November. It is based on 2385 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SW. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal November. 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 think that that clean surf can be found at Egmond aan Zee about 5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 38% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical November, of which 2 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.
