Example Forecast 28/07/12 – 29/07/12 – Thursday Morning Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A fat Icelandic Low will move South and sit around Northern Scotland on Saturday at about 1000 millibars, while a High just North of the Azores at 1026 millibars circles to our West in the near Mid-Atlantic. Sunday will see the Low fill a bit to 1004 millibars, now encompassing most of the UK, as it combines with a Scandinavian Low the other side of the North Sea. This Low pressure entity will, keep the Azorean High (at about 1024 millibars), South and moving in to Central Europe as it moves East in our vague direction. So this will mean not a lot of surf South of the Highlands at least, and generally unfavourable winds in many places.

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks like it is the best of the bunch, fun at times for the hunters amongst you, followed by the Channel Islands; with the South West (and Wales) being a lowly third. Having said that, yes, the South West and Wales will be smaller and onshore, it may still be rideable, but quite lumpy. Search and you may well find?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun, ideal learning weekend. Have fun and remember…….paddling keeps you fit and will make you a better surfer, the more you can do the better.

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.
