Nieuwpoort Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Nieuwpoort that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 8675 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was N, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 0.7% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere spring. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Nieuwpoort is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Nieuwpoort about 0.7% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 12 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 1 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.
