Example Forecast 15/10/11 – 16/10/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The Low action will be Northerly based, a Low of 982 millibars will be to the West of Iceland on Saturday, moving into Western Iceland during the day on Saturday. This Icelandic Low will throw cold fronts down across the UK over the period. Meanwhile off Galicia in the Mid-Atlantic there will be a High of 1028 millibars, whilst to the East of us in Western Russia there will be another High again of 1032 millibars. The result of all this, is that mainland England will be under the influence of a High Pressure, whilst having cold fronts passing overhead. This High pressure scenario will delay / stall the Low (and it’s swell) from getting down past Western Ireland until late Sunday / more likely Monday. Clearly though the Low’s proximity to Scotland will mean huge amounts of swell for Western & Northern Scotland, and with the High pressures quite a lot of winds, but good at times. ;0) Do read your individual areas to make the most of what there is / to take-in your specific local scenario……

OVERALL

Northern Scotland again is the call, everywhere else will be a weak third place on anyone’s scale. Deepest darkest exposed / swell amplifying spots in Kernow are the second best, being clean on Saturday, before sea breezes come in for Sunday with a bit more swell, but still fun hopefully.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

An ideal weekend for you guys in the deepest darkest South West, not big and challenging, manageable and ideal for learning. Yes the wind will be in your face on Sunday, but your not good enough to worry about that yet, just get in there and practice, practice.

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.
