Example Forecast 17/09/11 – 18/09/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok, well Saturday's situation is more or less the same, but Sunday has changed somewhat, so hang on tight here it all comes...... Friday's Low of 1002 millibars will hit Western Ireland, and cross mainland UK over Friday, very closely behind it will be another Icelandic Low of 994 millibars that will move rapidly South and East towards Ireland over Friday night and into Saturday. By Saturday day the Low will have crossed from North West Ireland into Scotland and be popping out into the North Sea. Whilst all this is happening a High of 1028 millibars will be off North Western Galicia / in the Mid-Atlantic hovering in situ. Sunday will see the remanants of “Marla” combine with another Low off Greenland and start to head East towards us at 982 millibars. So just to recap for Sunday there will be the remains of the Irish Low, now in the North Sea at 1000 millibars, with this new big Low sandwiched between Greenland / Iceland menacing us from the fringes, whilst chucking cold fronts in our direction, as the fat Galician High just remains in it's area. As a result of all this the winds will be primarily North Westerly for most places, but do read the detail to get the most of what there is.......

OVERALL

Another stormy one, read your individual areas to make the most of what there is. There are fun waves out there, but can you find them without getting bashed into a cliff?! - we hope so..........!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Okay anotrher weekend to avoid the main spots in the South West, uber sheltered Welsh spots or the South Coast would be our recomendations. Whatever you do, it is the start of winter swells so safety is paramount for you guys........

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.
