Example Forecast 19/05/12 – 20/05/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A fat Low in Biscay of 1008 millibars will move up to be just off the South West of England encompassing Brittany too, on Saturday. This Low pressure system, will be squashed on Sunday by a High pressure in the Mid-Atlantic of 1032 millibars which will move in across the Northern and Central parts of the UK and Ireland on Saturday and into Sunday. Consequently there ain't a lot of swell coming in, and what there is will be wind driven mainly, read your individual areas to make the most of what there is. But, stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The East Coast of the UK again will be the main area, but it will be lumpy due to the cross-onshores. Everywhere else will be naffer, except swell amplifying spots on the Scottish West Coast which could be fun and clean. 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.
