PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

The High pressures will be in the North Sea, Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean on Saturday all at about 1016 millibars. The Low’s will be West of Galicia at 1002 millibars, moving East into the Bay of Biscay. There will be another Low in the Mid-Atlantic at 992 millibars, as well as another weak Low North East of Greenland in the Greenland Sea, at 1002 millibars. Sunday will see the Biscay Low move North and East to take up all of Biscay and much of France at fattening to 1004 millibars, the Mid-Atlantic Low will have deepened to 988 millibars and still be sitting in the Mid-Atlantic. The High pressures meanwhile will be around Eastern Europe, the North Sea and another High coming across out of Southern Greenland at 1012 millibars crossing between Iceland and Northern Scotland. All this will mean swell in the South West and some onshore stuff for the East Coast on Sunday, make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is………

OVERALL

The South West of the UK will be fun and clean at swell amplifying spots especially on Saturday (being the bigger of the two days), Sunday will still be fun though. The East Coast will be bashable on Sunday too, but lumpy with generally onshore winds. Everywhere else will be small, good hunting…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small in Scotland, the East Coast will be bashable on Sunday. But the main action will be down in the South West and Wales, with Saturday being the bigger of the two days…………

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.
