Example Forecast 20/09/14 – 21/09/14 – Friday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High pressure of 1027 millibars will sit off the North West Irish Coast, encompassing much of the UK on Saturday. Two low pressures, one South of Greenland (the Far Western Atlantic) at 984 millibars, with another fatter one West of Portugal at 1008 millibars. Sunday will see the Western Atlantic Low move East towards us deepening as it goes to 980 millibars, coming to rest off the East Coast of Greenland by Midday. The High will also have moved and increased in pressure to 1028 millibars, encompassing all of the UK. The Low off the Portuguese Coast will still be there, now being 1014 millibars. All this will mean predominantly small surf, make sure you read the detail and stay tuned for further updates as the week goes on……

OVERALL

Nothing really of note getting in due to the High pressure over the North of us, but swell amplifying spots in the far South West will be your best option overall. Good hunting wherever you are, as you will have to sniff it out a bit………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Small swell only, ideal for you guys though, so get in there and practice, practice – that is the only way you will get better.

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.
