Example Forecast 21/08/10 – 22/08/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things have changed significantly since Monday, with the Low pressure off the Irish Coast deepening substantially on Friday to 989 millibars. However, by Saturday this Low will have been pushed North off the Northern Scottish Coast still at about 990 millibars, before moving further North on Sunday into the Northern North Altantic (pushed in part by a Greenland High, and the European Highs). This fast moving pressure action is also sped up in part due to the Highs in Europe at 1025 plus millibars. So in summary, a bit of a mixed bag, that could change quickly, as is normal with so much fast movement. So if you see it rideable get in there fast……..

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.
