Example Forecast 08/10/11 – 09/10/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

On Saturday we will see Fridays big High fatten of 1032 millibars, it will stretch from the Mid-Atlantic West of Galicia all the way East into the Bay of Biscay. This High will effect all of South Western and Southern England. Meanwhile a big Low of 980 millibars just off Greenland on Saturday, will push cold fronts and swell into the Northern UK. It should be noted that this Low will have been in the Greenland area since Friday, and it’s fronts (which will have been crossing the UK over that period) will create a small Low on Friday in the Northern North Sea, which will rapidly move East and fill in Norway on Saturday. The Sunday situation looks much the same, as the Greenland Low will have tracked East over (and past) Iceland heading towards Norway (in a similar fashion to it’s mini-me on Friday). The Galician High will remain in situ, but be squashed by Saturday (now Sunday’s!) main Low as it encompasses much of the UK pushing it’s cold fronts South - hence squashing the High. Due to fast moving nature of the Low and the depth and situation of the High do read your specific area to get the best of what there is…….

OVERALL

Clearly Scotland is the call, looking clean and head high at certain spots and times. The East Coast will also get some fun clean waves (albeit weaker obviously than Scotland) over the period. The South West and Wales meanwhile will be onshore-ish and lumpy, but bashable at times.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

You’re spoilt for choice as there is fun rideable swell everywhere for you. We would encourage you to go East as it’ll be clean and you probably haven’t explored the Coast there much. But you should have fun wherever you go.

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.
