Example Forecast 28/05/11 – 29/05/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Mid-Atlantic High of 1030 millibars plus will stretch almost from the East Coast of North America into mainland Europe throughout the period. The Low action will come from Greenland and Iceland with a fat Greenland Low of 1000 millibars and an Icelandic Low of 990 millibars respectively on Saturday - these Low’s will have a Northerly track effecting mainly Ireland & Scotland as a result. Sunday will see the Low’s combine to form one bigger one of 988 millibars off North West Scotland by midday. As a result of all this, the main swell will be in the North West of the UK with wrap-around swell coming round Southern Ireland to the South West and Wales. Read your individual areas to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

A mixed weekend everywhere, the best looks to be parts of Northern Scotland. Everywhere else with swell will have onshore-ish winds…….search and ye may find….!?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging weekend for you guys, with probably head high waves and onshore winds in the South West (and Wales). Take it easy and avoid boards in your face, but remember none of us are Kelly Slater, so no excuses not to get wet! Good for everyone to get out there and practice, practice, practice! ;0)

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
