Kitty Hawk Pier Golf Statistieken, June: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Kitty Hawk Pier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical June and is based upon 2306 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either 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 SE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSW. 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal June. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Kitty Hawk Pier is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Kitty Hawk Pier about 31% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 21 days with waves in a typical June, of which 9 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.
