Example Forecast 05/07/14 – 06/07/14 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Two areas of Low pressure, one of 980 millibars East of Iceland, and another Low of 990 millibars North West of Ireland on Saturday will bring copious amounts of swell to Westerly facing spots. The counter balance of High pressures will be in Southern and Eastern Europe in the 1016 millibar range, with another fatter High of 1030 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic. Sunday will see the two Low pressures to the North of us remain in situ filling to 992 millibars and 997 millibars respectively, due to the High pressures, in particular the Mid-Atlantic one being still so fat and stable at 1030 millibars. Stay tuned as things may change as the week goes on…………

OVERALL

The South West and Wales will have waves, but the winds will be cross-shore, making what there is quite lumpy. But do stay tuned as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging weekend for you in the South West and Wales, perhaps some South Coast hunting on Saturday may be more manageable for you? But do stay tuned as things may 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.
