Example Forecast 31/03/12 – 01/04/12 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As described earlier in the week a High of 1024 millibars in the near Atlantic will be over the Western Near Atlantic and encompassing Ireland and all of the UK (especially the West Coast). The Low action out there is a filling one over Scandinavia both North and Central, with the latter one moving into the Baltic Sea by Sunday. The Scandinavian Low formation as it moves and fills will throw swell down much of the East Coast as it passes on Saturday on it’s way to mainland Scandinavia. Sunday will still see the entrenched High in the near Western Atlantic still encompassing the mainland of the UK. A new Northern weak Icelandic Low will pass by Northern Scotland on it’s way East to Scandinavia like it’s predecessors. All this will mean that the High will block any swell out there for the West, whilst the North and East will get swell, the bigger of the two days for them Being Saturday. Read your area and surrounding areas to make the most of what there is………

OVERALL

The North Coast of Scotland and the East Coast are the best options by far, everywhere else will just be varying degrees of flatness.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well if you want swell Norfolk is your best bet by far, fun clean and offshore-ish = ideal for you with a fun manageable 1-3ft on Saturday, then dropping back a bit for Sunday. The further North up the East Coast you go, add a foot per hour more or less. Good hunting……..

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.
