Example Forecast 31/07/10 – 01/08/10 – Friday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The scenario has changed somewhat since earlier in the week, in so far as several Low pressure systems will be coming in towards us. But unfortunately a fat High in the Mid-Atlantic will block a lot of the swell, and give unfavourable winds for most places. Make sure you read this in detail to avoid the worst and get the best of what there is! Saturday will see three weak Low pressures in situ, one to the North East of Scotland (moving in an Easterly direction, one over Iceland (again moving Eastwards), while the third will be to the East of Greenland, again heading East towards us. All these Lows will be in about the 1000 millibar range, while the High meanwhile will be at about 1030 millibars. But, by Sunday the Greenland Low will have moved down into Ireland, and squeezed the High from actually getting in (to us). All this will mean the winds will be generally unfavourable for most of the Western Coasts due to the filling of the Low combined with the presence of the High, still in the Mid-Atlantic High.

OVERALL

Our choice would be Western Scotland, but hunting to avoid the winds is key to finding your spot. Otherwise it’ll be small onshore and naff pretty much everywhere!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Another fun weekend, no excuse not to get out there. Small waves, but this is just what you need to help keep / get you fit, and to give you confidence for the winter months. Make hay while the sun shines, as the challenges / tests to see if you have improved will come in September onwards.

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.
