Example Forecast 21/04/12 – 22/04/12 – Thursday Late Night Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low of 996 millibars over the mainland of the UK, this Low and it’s associated fronts will also stretch as far East as the Baltic. A High of 1024 millibars over the Azores will be the counter to this pressure system. On Sunday a new Low of 994 millibars will move down from Greenland and in towards Ireland and the UK, it’s movement will extend the area of Low pressure over the Northern Hemisphere. A High of 1024 millibars in the Azores will be the counter balance to this flow of Low pressures / the only High in the area. This will mean onshore-ish winds for the Western Coasts, and variable winds for the East. Make sure you read your relevant area (and neighbouring ones) to make the most of what there is……

OVERALL

A bit of an all over the place type of weekend - Saturday AM for the East Coast of Scotland, Wales on Sunday and the South Coast on Sunday too. So loads to choose from, the South West looks lumpy, before getting bigger and lumpier! Make your choice and go……...

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well there’s swell everywhere, you just need to find it. Some areas will be cleaner than others, so a certain amount of hunting will be needed. However, you are not good enough to be too snooty, and should get in whatever it’s like wherever you are really.

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.
