Example Forecast 24/03/12 – 25/03/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As forecast earlier in the week an area of Low Pressures in the North Western Atlantic will deepen as three Low’s combine into an area of 962 millibars. As explained (in the previous report) two of these Lows will come from tNova Scotia and Greenland and the third from our area. This big Low pressure system will be pushed by a High pressure of 1028 millibars that will have moved Westwards from Russia and into Scandinavia, before crossing the North Sea and coming to rest over mainland UK especially on Sunday proper. Where it will be 1030 millibars over the whole of the UK and Eire. This will mean little or no action for the East Coast, but surf in the West, and it will be fun, but read the detail and make full use of the tides to make the most of what there is……..

OVERALL

Naff in overall Scotland and the East Coast, not much to mention on the South Coast (due in part to the cross-onshore winds, albeit light ones). Wales, the South West and the Channel Islands on the other hand will be fun sized and cranking – use the tides and swell amplifying spots to get the most of what there is – enjoy!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Surf will be challenging for you this weekend, make sure you look left and right before you even start paddling as there may be a more competent surfer with priority – roughly translated as……don’t get in other’s way! But clean fun surf, push yourself and you will score a fun ride or two.

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.
