Example Forecast 03/12/11 – 04/12/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

This weekend all the Low action will be around Greenland to Iceland and into the Norwegian Sea, two Low pressures from 960 millibars to 988 millibars will be in the afore mentioned area on Saturday. In the Mid-Atlantic a High of 1020 millibars, with another West of Portugal at 932 millibars will help to push the Low’s in their Easterly direction. Sunday will see these Highs combine into one of 1032 millibars over the Azores, which will push any Northern Low’s well into the Norwegian Sea and into Norway. However, despite the fast Easterly movement of the Low’s North of Scotland, their continued depth will not be lessoned or effect the amount of swell getting in. Read your respective areas to make the most of the swell, and avoid (where necessary) the winds. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The Scottish North and West Coasts will be off the Richter scale swell-wise – only super sheltered spots will be rideable - the Scottish East Coast meanwhile will be fun and clean. In a similar fashion for the rest of the UK, most West Coast spots whether they are in Wales or the South West will be big with onshore winds - thus again the South and East Coasts will be cleaner (but smaller). So some hunting will be needed to get rideable waves, stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Another big and onshore weekend in the South West and Wales, head for uber sheltered spots. The South Coast, or Norfolk would be our call for you guys to have fun. Go on, search for new spots, that’s half the fun, new adventures! ;0) 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.
