Example Forecast 06/12/14 – 07/12/14 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Fat High pressure 1044 millibars will sit in the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday Midday, with a deep (comparatively) Low of 976 millibars North East of Iceland. Sunday will see the area of High pressure at 1040 millibars having extended in mass / area to cover a bigger area stretching all the way into the Bay of Biscay and South Western England. The Icelandic Low meanwhile will have dropped down from over North Eastern Iceland into the North Eastern Atlantic, splitting as it does into two entities with one being 972 millibars South East of Iceland and North of Scotland, heading into the Norwegian Sea. Whilst the second splintered Low also at 972 millibars will have moved North East into the Norwegian Sea just off the Norwegian Sea at 972 millibars. This will all mean onshore winds for South Western England and Wales, whilst the majority of the swell will be hitting Scotland. Make sure you read your areas, and stay tuned, as things may well change as the week goes on……

OVERALL

Scotland has the swell this weekend, but you’ll need to head to sheltered spots that can handle the swell and strong winds, those wrap-around spots are your best bet. The East Coast will be clean and funThe South West and Wales will be lumpy and un-enticing overall, due primarily to the winds. But stay tuned as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Your best option is the East Coast by far, the South West will be lumpy and messy overall due to the onshore winds. But 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.
