Example Forecast 11/09/10 – 12/09/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things have changed somewhat compared to earlier in the week, in so far the High will move in faster than first thought. So in summary there will be two Lows in the high 990 millibar range, to the East and West of Iceland respectively, with the Mid-Atlantic High of 1028 millibars starting to move into our area of influence. By Sunday the High will have fattened further and have moved even nearer to us at 1030 millibars, encompassing much of the UK, pushing the Icelandic Lows further North and away from us. However, there will be another small splinter Low off the Western Icelandic Low of 996 millibars, which will benefit North Western Scotland more than anywhere. So in short North Westerly winds overall and the resulting lumpy swell that will result. So a mixed bag overall, if you can get a spot that will have the swell, but avoid the winds you will be part of the select few – count your chickens, and get in there fast!

OVERALL

Scotland and parts of Wales would be our call, everywhere else will be lumpy due to the winds. Search and you will find, but don’t get too choosy, it’s not a weekend to be snobby, if it’s half good, take it, it may be the best you’ll find.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging on Saturday size-wise for those of you in the South West – see if you can find shelter from the winds. Sunday will be more manageable for you size-wise. But you will be learning what lumpiness is really like!

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.
