Example Forecast 25/12/10 – 26/12/10 – Tuesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see three Low pressures in the of 980 millibar range in the Western and North Western Atlantic respectively. A High of 1020 millibars which will be over much of the Central and Southern UK, will be pushed Eastwards into Central Europe. Due to the proximity of the Lows (to each other) and their individual sizes, they will present as one front moving towards us over the period. By Sunday the High will have moved and encamped into Central Europe at about 1020 millibars, and the Lows will be off Western approaches, in particular with one off the North Western Coast of Ireland. This will all mean offshore winds for Western Coast and swell. But stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

Clearly the main issue will not be so much the waves, but unfortunately the weather, which will dictate whether you can get in to start with! The second factor will be the wind, shelter from them on Sunday in particular is a must do, to make the most of the swell. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well there’s swell, but you will need to shave a bit off the size, as it may be a tad challenging for you. Head for uber sheltered spots that will be smaller and more manageable – mind the travelling conditions, as it is cold out there. 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.
