Example Forecast 08/01/11 – 09/01/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Friday's big Low of 974 millibars will have moved from the North Western Spanish Coast into Biscay and be heading towards us to impact with the South West by early Saturday. As it moves in, it will fill obviously, before crossing the mainland UK during Saturday, still on it's North Easterly track. Sunday will see two pressure systems one in the North Sea (a combination of Saturday's North Eastwards tracking Low, and a minor Scandinavian one) at about 982 millibars, with the second West of Eire at about 1000 millibars. This will all mean a mixed bag, for most places really, and not great overall. However, it does look like a promising South Coast swell; so best to start there!?!

OVERALL

A mixed bag really, nothing screams out as majorly, the South Coast is perhaps the best of the bunch. Maybe Kernow spots on the South Coast where it might be slightly more cross-offshore - otherwise the normal South Coast spots will be bashable and fun.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

The best advice would be to search for some South Coast action overall – welcome to South Coast hunting!

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.
