OVERALL

Big, but you’ll have to hunt somewhat in Scotland and use your knowledge, flat for the East Coast, a few ripples for exposed South Coast spots. The South West will have the waves, but also the winds, probably the best bet for things is Wales, which should be fun. As ever hunt and ye shall find…. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop 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.
