Dauphin Island Pier Surf and Wind Quality by Season (Alabama, USA)

The charts below show frequency of occurrence of a certain swell or wind in Dauphin Island Pier, broken down by both direction and strength (wave height).

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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
