Example Forecast 05/11/11 – 06/11/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High in the Southern Atlantic will start to ease into our sphere of influence over the period. But Saturday will start with a Low of 976 millibars East of Greenland / West of Iceland, which will effect North Western Coasts. There will be another, but fatter Low of 1000 millibars over Central France / Europe (clearly being over land there will be no swell impact). But as the previously mentioned Southern Atlantic High starts to move North into the near Atlantic (stretching from below Portugal all the way up to Southern Ireland), it will block any Low’s from the West. There are some Lows off the Eastern Coast of North America, but due to the Southern Atlantic High (that is moving North), they will not get to move East towards us – as the High will block them. Instead the Low’s (as they are) will be funneled North East around Greenland / Iceland. This is the score for the weekend period, next week is a whole different story……..! ;0)

OVERALL

Northern Scotland, the South Coast and the Channel Islands will all have fun waves over the period - knowledge and some hunting may be needed, but the hunters will be rewarded. You’ll have to read your individual areas closely to get the most / best of what there is…...

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Looks like South Coast weekend ideally for you guys, having said that some Welsh spots will be fun too. The South West will be onshore on Saturday and will only start to clean-up a bit on Sunday. So to onshore or not to onshore that is the question?! Read your surrounding areas and do some exploration would be our suggestion. ;0)

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.
