Example Forecast 29/12/12 – 30/12/12 – Tuesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A deep Low of 956 millibars in the Northern Atlantic on late Friday will churn swell for much of the West of the UK over the period. Saturday will see the Low deepen to 944 millibars and move North Eat into the Norwegian Sea by Midday on Saturday, Sunday will see the same Low having filled 952 millibars and moved into the Northern Norwegian Sea / Greenland Sea. There will also be a new Low of 990 millibars coming out of Canada on Sunday but this will not really have much of a major impact, as the main hit will have been in the first half of the weekend. The High action will be around the Azores at 1028 millibars and Eastern Europe at 1032 millibars, and by Sunday these will have moved to Spain and Russia, both in the 1032 millibar range respectively. Stay tuned for further updates as, as the week goes on, as things may well change…………

OVERALL

Well it looks like a massive one for the Scottish North Coast, pretty big for the West Coast and howling offshores for the East Coast – hopefully with a bit of swell getting in under it all. The South Coast will be fun, as well as Wales and some spots in the South West. Searching and a bit of luck will be the key to getting anything fun for the last few days of the year. Stay tuned for further updates, as thing may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Another big weekend in the South West, probably best to head to the South Coast for something a bit more manageable. Unless you’re in Wales, in which case you should find some thing fun. The East Coast will be super windy, so mind your head! ;0) 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.
