Example Forecast 29/01/11 – 30/01/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Well by the look of it another weekend dominated by a High pressure, this time of 1028 millibars, formed by two Highs coming together on Saturday (one from Germany and a Western Atlantic one). The Low action will be of 980 millibars off Greenland and will be big (in size / area covered), but the High over the UK will keep the Low from actually getting, as well as keeping it on a Northward track towards Iceland on Sunday. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

Well our choice would be the Channel Islands on Saturday, followed by Northern Scotland on Sunday. But such jet-setting is pretty impractical in reality, so you get what there is, where you are! But not great overall for most places, due to the lack of swell getting in more than anything else. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A small weekend, not really worth a long drive, unless you want a weekend away and some coastal exploring. 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.
