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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

An Azorean High of 1032 millibars will sit in situ throughout the period, blocking swell from coming in to the South West(and Wales). The Low’s will mainly be in the form of a dissipating fat one around North Western Ireland and another fat one on the East Coast in the 1008 millibar range, but swell producing. A Nova Scotian Low of 972 millibars on Sunday will move East and into the Northern North Sea South of Greenland come Sunday fattening to 984 millibars as it goes. All this will mean little or no major swell for Southern and South Western Coasts, with what there is being centered around Northern Scotland and North Eastern Coasts. Read your specific areas to make the best of what there is…….

OVERALL

The East Coast of the UK on Saturday, followed by Northern Scotland on Sunday is the call. Everywhere else will be a very lowly second or rather third best…..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small and not challenging in the South West and Wales (with naff-ish winds on Saturday overall), good for practicing though. Slightly bigger for the East Coast(on Saturday at least) with cross-offshore winds. The choice is yours, East is probably best! ;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.
