Example Forecast 20/12/14 – 21/12/14 – Friday PM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High pressure of 1037 millibars will sit in the Bay of Biscay, but it will double centred with the second half stretching into the Mid-Atlantic around the Azores at 1039 millibars. The Low will be 969 millibars coming out of South Eastern Greenland and heading towards the Western Coast of Iceland. Sunday Midday will see the picture have been complicated somewhat by more Low’s coming out of Greenland and North America, making the picture as follows…..a Low around Eastern Iceland at 974 millibars, will be joined by another coming out of Greenland and head towards Iceland, but slightly deeper at 970 millibars. Meanwhile in the Mid-Atlantic another weak Low of 1009 millibars will start to head East towards us, the Azorean High will still be in place, but slightly weaker at 1036 millibars, with the other High in the bay of Biscay still 1036 millibars. All this will mean that there will be swell, but the key as ever will be the winds and making the best of what there is……..

OVERALL

Eastern Scotland, and the English East Coast looks to be the best options by far, although the South West and Wales will also be rideable and fun at times. Read your areas to get the best there is…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The East Coast is the best bet overall, failing that Wales, the South West on Sunday or the South Coast are all options. Try somewhere new, go East and explore…………

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.
