Example Forecast 07/06/14 – 08/06/14 – Wednesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low pressure of 988 millibars in the Near Atlantic to the West of us on Midday Saturday will provide lots of lovely swell potential for Western facing coasts. A weak Low pressure coming out of the Near Atlantic Low will sit over the mainland UK at 1008 millibars, with High pressures of 1016 millibars over Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean helping to provide the favourable winds for the North Coast of Devon and Cornwall. Sunday will see the Eastern European High move West towards the Southern UK, encompassing much of the Channel and Southern UK at 1016 millibars. This High pressure will result in keeping the Near Atlantic Low still off the Western Coasts of the UK at 996 millibars. But the fact that the Low pressure is sitting in situ for a prolonged period (from Friday) means that it will generate more swell over the period, rather than just rushing in and past us like normally happens. But do read your areas and stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

Well for a change it looks like there is fun clean swell in the South West and Wales, everywhere else will be 3rd rate. But do stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Challenging size-wise in the Devon and Cornwall, more manageable in Wales for you guys. But do stay tuned for further updates, as things may well change 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.
