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

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Two Fat High pressures one around the Azores at 1046 millibars with another coming out of North America at 1043 millibars will be one big area of High pressure in the Mid-Atlantic. The counter balance to this will be two Low pressures to the West and East of Iceland at 982 millibars and 975 millibars respectively. Sunday will see the High pressures form one big entity of 1044 millibars in the Southern Mid-Atlantic, the Low pressures will have moved East, with one being North of Scotaland at 986 millibars, with the second having crossed the Norwegian Sea and up the North Western Norwegian Coast at 966 millibars. All this will mean swell for Scotland (slightly smaller than suggested earlier in the week), but still very solid. The South West and Wales will be lumpy, that’s about it! Read your areas to get the best of what there is……..

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 South West and Wales will be lumpy and un-enticing overall, due primarily to the winds. The South Coast on Sunday will be worth a look for the keen. Good hunting wherever you head…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Not great anywhere really, maybe South facing Welsh spots on Sunday, or the South Coast, would be your best bet…………

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.
