Example Forecast 26/04/14 – 27/04/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 992 millibars will be sandwiched between South Eastern Ireland and South West England by Midday. To our North will be a High of 1022 millibars in the Norwegian Sea, with another to our East in Western Russia at 1020 millibars, and a final one to our South around the Canary Islands at 1024 millibars. There will also be a Low coming out of North America at about 996 millibars. This convoluted picture will mean that due to the concentration of High pressures surrounding us, the movements of the Low pressures will be slow over the period. Sunday Midday will see Saturday’s Low move slightly South East to be centred in the Channel at 1004 millibars, the North American Low will have moved into the Mid-Atlantic at 996 millibars, but it will be too far West to have much baring on us at that stage. Overall, all the swell will be in the South West, but do read your areas to make the most of what there is………

OVERALL

Well the South West and Wales looks to be the best of the bunch by far, the second best would be the South Coast and the Channel Islands. There will be surf elsewhere but it’ll be predominantly onshore. Read your areas to make the most of what there is…….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging for you in the South West throughout, Wales will be a bit more manageable. Be careful, always look at the peak and see who has priority before paddling for a wave. Have fun wherever you go.

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.
