Example Forecast 13/11/10 – 14/11/10 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a North Sea Low of 984 millibars off the East Coast of Scotland, whilst in the South West two Lows one just off the South West Coast at 990 millibars, with another just off the Irish West Coast at 988 millibars will be moving in / Eastwards. All these pressure systems will move East over the period and dissipate as they go. Sunday’s detail is lacking at this time, but it looks like a deep Icelandic Low will move down to be off the North West Scottish Coast. This will mean swell for most places, but wind dodging will be the key to get anything rideable. Make sure you read your relevant areas for the detail, and keep an eye out for Thursday’s update which will be more detailed. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

A mixed bag, but those who have been hunting recently will be feeling it and know where to head. For the rest of you’se use your nose and head for the spots that can handle the winds and provide some semblance of shelter. Sunday will see a complete wind shift down in the South West, so again your knowledge is key – or just open a map! There are waves, but you’ll have to drive almost everywhere to score the necessary adrenalin rush! Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Not a weekend to be caught out of your depth / severely outside your comfort zone, as the swell will be building / getting bigger over the period. Make good use of sheltered spots, and expect a lot of driving to increase your knowledge and understanding of how each break handles the winds. But if you see it ride it – don’t spend all weekend in the car! Stay tuned for further updates, 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.
