Example Forecast 16/10/10 – 17/10/10 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

As predicted a big High of 1028 millibars will be off the West Coast on Saturday moving swiftly to encompass the whole of the Uk with 1024 milibars of High Pressure. Meanwhile off the West Coast of Greenland two Low’s of 1000 millibars will combine and move quickly West towards Iceland by late Suturday / Sunday. By Sunday the Icelandic Low will deepen to 996 millibars and start to move into the North Sea, whilst the Rest of the UK (South of Scotland), will still be dominated by the High pressure. It should be noted, that there is NO Low pressure or swell in the Atlantic throughout this period. Also the previously mentioned Low in the Southern North Sea will have moved into Germany by Late Friday. Make sure you read your specific areas (and neighbouring ones too), to ensure you get the most of what there is / don’t waste your time hunting for nothing (if you’re South of the border that is!).

OVERALL

As predicted, a small to flat weekend for much of the UK. Northern Scotland however will be fun (if you can find the shelter from the winds) on Sunday.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Very small everywhere, head for big beaches and make the most of the pushing tides. The only good thing to say is that you won’t get any good surfers around (as they will be staying at home). So you can practice, worth going in, even for a paddle – fitness is one of your biggest hurdles, so use it as an opportunity for exploring and paddling fitness!

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.
