Example Forecast 28/04/12 – 29/04/12 – Tuesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday will see a fat Low of 1004 millibars in the Northern North Sea, which will have been providing swell prior to the start of the weekend, before it moves East into Scandanavia filling as it goes. Saturday will see a High pressure North of the Azores at 1028 millibars, which will block an Icelandic Low of 1000 millibars and another of a similar depth over Spain from reaching the UK proper on Saturday. By Sunday the European Lows over Spain and France will splinter and one will move up into Biscay and up off the Coast of Brittany and the South West of the UK at 1004 millibars by midday on Sunday. So the scenario this weekend is pushed and organized by the High around the Azores, which will push the Icelandic Low East into the Greenland Sea, while the European one will be to the South West of us. This Low to the South West of the UK will move up off the West Coast of Ireland as Monday / the start of the week comes. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The East Coast and Eastern Scotland would be our call on Saturday, maybe the North Coast of Scotland at times. Then for Sunday the far South West of the UK on the South Coast perhaps could be worth a gander. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The East Coast will have good swell overall for you guys and would definitely be the better more manageable, and more consistent swell-wise. Yes it will be onshore, but still good enough. 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.
