Example Forecast 03/11/12 – 04/11/12 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big Low of 976 millibars just off the Northern Scottish North / North West Coast will dominate our weather over the period, with another system off the Scandinavian Coast at the same pressure depth. By Sunday the Scottish Low will drop slightly down the North West Coast, whilst the Scandinavian Low will rise up the Coast of Scandinavia into the Norwegian Sea. These two Low systems will cover all of the UK, and the only High pressure nearby will be in the Mid-Atlantic at 1020 millibars, but this will have little effect for us over the period. As a result of the systems there will be swell everywhere, the biggest of the lot in the South West and pushed by largely onshore / cross-shore winds. Do stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on, as things may change…………

OVERALL

Well there’s swell almost everywhere at times, searching and wind dodging will be key to getting something rideable. As ever if you see it - ride it before it changes / the wind switches. Our call would be possibly the Northern Scottish Coast on Saturday, the South West (and Wales), and the South Coast on Sunday, and the East Coast at certain times too. Do stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The Challenging in the South West for you guys, play it safer than being sorry. The East Coast and the South Coast look more manageable for you overall. 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.
