Meanwhile around Greenland will be two additional Low pressures of 995 millibars in the Denmark Strait and just off the Southern tip at 971 millibars. All this will mean mixed conditions, nothing really great, read your areas to get the best of what there is……….

OVERALL

Northern Scotland looks to be the best option on Saturday. The South West as the next best option, dawnies and dusk patrols are the best options as the winds will be lighter.……….

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

If you’re heading to Wales and the South West find some shelter as it’ll be lumpy and a bit challenging size-wise. Have fun, play safe……….

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.
