Example Forecast 22/10/11 – 23/10/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see two Low’s of about 990 millibars to the West and East of Iceland, with a third over Northern Norway in the same pressure range, just to make the scenario even more convoluted a fourth Low of 1000 millibars will also be off Eastern North America. Meanwhile an Eastern European High of 1026 millibars will stretch as far as Southern England, providing the counter balance to all the Low action. Saturday will see the North American Low race into the Mid-Atlantic and a new Greenland Low West of Iceland, these Lows’ will be in the 990 milibar range, and the previous days Low pressures, (as the European High) will all of tracked Eastwards, out of our area. By Sunday these two new Low’s will be dominating the whole of our Western Coasts, although not that deep (both about 9990 millibars) their duration and movement across the Atlantic, juxstapositioned against the Eastern European High (at the start of the period) will mean that the swell they carry will be big. Clearly with so much going on we would advise you to stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on. In the meantime, do read you individual areas to make the most of things ………….

OVERALL

Swell everywhere, I kid you not! The question is the winds though, light on Saturday, but potentially getting a lot stronger for Sunday, your knowledge for every Coast will be key to get the best of what there is. But enjoy and don’t get a board in the face! Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A big and challenging weekend, you’ll have to be on your toes, as the swell will build quickly (especially in the South West), and when it does it’ll be challenging. Sunday looks to have strong winds, so after falling off / a wipeout always come-up protecting your face / your head with your arm or you could get a board in the head! But 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.
