Example Forecast 25/09/10 – 26/09/10 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Southern Greenland Low of 1000 millibars will move in towards us over the period, whilst a Russian High pressure system of 1020 millibars will produce those much sought after Easterly winds for Western Coasts. However, as ever, when there are Easterly winds it is never clear how fast Low’s will actually move in, and whether the Easterly winds will slow it’s progress. What is in our favour is that during the week, there will be other Low’s moving Eastwards (cutting a path) before this slightly fatter one. But we wait with baited breath to see how the week progresses, and how things will finally shape up. Whilst all this is happening another Low, again about 1000 millibars will move down the North Sea, before moving Eastwards too – thus giving swell to Eastern Coasts on Saturday, albeit a bit onshore and messy. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Well it’s not often that we can say it’s great everywhere, but it is! Okay the East Coast will have cross-onshore winds on Saturday, but there will be some spots that can handle the flavour. Scotland will be fun, as will the South West – search and you will score it! But as ever we wait with baited breath to see how the week progresses to really get a complete picture of things. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A good weekend, but make sure you stick to your level and ability, it’s good to push yourself, but if you know it’s too big for you find somewhere a bit more sheltered. It’s the standing up that counts after all, and you need small waves that you can dominate in. if you do get out back with the more proficient riders, it’s all about watching and learning and not getting in the way! 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.
