Example Forecast 01/09/12 – 02/09/12 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

On Saturday a High of 1028 millibars will be over South Western England and encompassing most of the Bay of Biscay, stretching as far into the Atlantic as the Azores. So the High will cover a big area, and it’s associated fronts will cover much of the Southern UK. The Low action will be at 980 millibars just North of Iceland in the Denmark Straight between Greenland. This Low will cross Iceland over the period and move East joining with another Low in the Greenland Sea as it moves into the Norwegian Sea still at about the same pressure depth. Sunday will still see the High pressure in the Bay of Biscay still in the 1028 millibar range. The result of all this will be swell impacting the North Coast of Scotland and generally lumpy average small-ish waves in the South West and Wales. Read your specific areas to make the most of what there is…..

OVERALL

Some hunting in Northern Scotland over the period may result in some cranking and challenging surf. Everywhere else looks mediocre at best, read your area (and surrounding areas) to make the most of what there is…..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Lumpy surf overall in the South West, as the winds will bring what there is. Northern Scotland will be on the big scale for you guys, so be careful up there (the West Coast may be a better option). For those down in the South West, don’t be picky, it’s all rideable - practice makes perfect afterall ! ;0)

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.
