Example Forecast 02/10/10 – 03/10/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big Low of 974 millibars will be off the North West Scottish Coast, pumping swell into the Highlands, it will even produce enough wrap around swell for the Scottish East Coast on Saturday. Meanwhile a smaller Mid-Atlantic Low of 984 millibars will move in towards us, bringing more swell for Western / South Western Coasts throughout the period. By Sunday the Scottish Low will still be more or less in situ, albeit a bit more Northern, just South of Iceland, while the Mid-Atlantic Low will have moved into Biscay. Due to the High being over Russia winds will be light, and the dominant wind direction will be South Westerly throughout – although light for most places (except Scotland on Saturday).

OVERALL

Hooray for the Tartan Army ! – the Scots look to be getting a pumping weekend. Variable light winds for the South West and Wales will mean some hunting is needed, but it will be worth the hunt if you score it good. Search and ye shall find, almost everywhere……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging weekend overall for you, don’t get in to a place that is way beyond your level – play it safe. If you do get out back with the more proficient riders, it’s all about watching and learning and not getting in the way!

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.
