Example Forecast 09/03/13 – 10/03/13 – Thursday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 984 millibars in the Near South West Atlantic, off South Western Ireland and North West of North West Spain will fatten to 988 millibars, and splinter into two fronts covering a big area. Sunday will see the Low fatten even more to about 996 millibars, and get a little closer, edging on getting into the Bay of Biscay. The High pressure will be 1040 millibars and over Greenland, but will also move North East into the Greenland Sea and then the North Eastern Atlantic by Sunday, down and around Iceland. It is for this reason that the Low will have problems getting in fully, but as it sits out in the Near Atlantic for a while it will push some swell in, so make sure you read your individual areas to make the most of what there is…….

OVERALL

Well it’s all happening on the West Coasts this weekend, make sure you read the detail. There will also be swell in Northern Scotland and the East Coast too, but wind dodging will be more the order of the day there. Good hunting……..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Enjoy Saturday in the South West as it’ll be the most manageable of the two days for you guys. Sunday will see the winds pick-up a bit as will the swell significantly – mind the winds and head for sheltered, smaller spots where it will be more manageable for you guys. The East Coast will be big and onshore, beware! Good hunting…..

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.
