Egmond aan Zee Swell Statistics, Summer: 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 summer and is based upon 7251 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates 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 biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the W. 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 5 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere summer. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Egmond aan Zee is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Egmond aan Zee about 6% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 32% of the time. This is means that we expect 35 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 5 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.
