Example Forecast 04/09/10 – 05/09/10 – Tuesday Late Night Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Ok, well all the hype that you have heard on the grapevine, might just be just that – hype. The reality of the situation is that a near Atlantic Fat Low of 1006 millibars will be off the Irish West Coast on Saturday, but it will have two centers - with the second Low in the Mid-Atalntic, following on after the first. By Sunday they will have both moved North, towards Greenland and up into the near Atlantic, as the winds funnel them North. A Scandinavian High of 1025 millibars plus, will meanwhile dominate the North Sea and East Coast respectively. All this will mean that the winds will strengthen as the period goes on, and keep what swell there is off the Western Coast from really getting in. But stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Western Scotland looks really good then UK Western Coasts are a close second. But for the South Western UK (including Wales), it is doubtful at this stage if all the swell will get in, due to the East Coast / North Sea High and it’s strengthening offshore winds. Searching and swell amplifying spots will be the call for sure……. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun weekend with some challenging waves for you – good clean conditions. Pay attention to the surfers riding the waves and don’t get in their way – learning the surfing green cross code is a must for everyone! A good weekend to continue that long learning curve you are on. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop 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.
