PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low of 968 millibars move over North East England, stretching into the North Sea, with another Low in the Western Atlantic at 972 millibars, heading in our direction. The main High pressure will in turn be around the Azores at 1036 millibars. Sunday will see Saturday’s main Low will have moved up the Norwegian Coast filling slightly enroute to 976 millibars. The Western Atlantic Low will have travelled East and be just off the Western Irish Coast at 984 millibars. This will all mean swell for the South West and East Coasts too, hunt and read the detail…..

OVERALL

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Head for Norfolk, which will be clean and fun, Wales will have lumpy ripples, the South Coast will also be worth a look for you guys. The South West generally (especially on Saturday) will just be an onshore mess.

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.
