Example Forecast 27/08/11 – 28/08/11 – Tuesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As Friday ends the Low’s in our sphere of influence (one over Southern England at 1005 millibars, and the other in the North Sea at 1008 millibars) will both be pushed Eastwards, due to a Mid-Atlantic High of 1020 millibars. By Saturday the High, now at 1024 millibars will be off the West Coast of the UK and Ireland, whilst the Low’s will have been pushed East into Scandinavia and off the Norwegian Coast respectively. Sunday will see the Western High remaining in situ West of the UK and just off Ireland at the same pressure strength, the Scandinavian Low will also remain in it’s location, but will be squeezed Eastwards by the High. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

The Scottish East Coast on Sunday would be our call by far, everywhere else looks naff. Although in the South West at times the wind may drop and you may get it cleanish on Saturday at least. So a mixed bag at this stage, but stay tuned for further updates is a must, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Good waves to learn on for you guys in the South West on Saturday, but it will get smaller for Sunday. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

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.
