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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A weak fat Low of 1008 millibars above Northern Spain will move into Biscay and then into mainland France over the period. Meanwhile an Icelandic High will fill and move in to encompass much of the Northern UK at 1024 millibars by Sunday midday. Consequently there ain't a lot of swell coming in, and what there is will be wind driven mainly, the East Coast looks to be the only place with a rideable wave this weekend, but read your individual areas to make the most of what there is……….

OVERALL

The East Coast of the UK again will be the main area, but it’ll be lumpy due to the cross-onshores. Everywhere else looks to be degrees of naffness…………although South Eastern Scotland would be worth a gander too! ;0)

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Another fun East Coast weekend for you guys and challenging at times, no reason not to get in there, especially in a new area. Go and explore…….

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.
