Example Forecast 05/03/11 – 06/03/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A huage High of 1032 millibars with two centres stretching from the East Coast of Iceland with the other centre of the Western Irish Coast, but the pressure system itself will be so big that it will also encompass the whole of the mainland UK. Meanwhile a South Eastern Greenland Low of 994 millibars will start to move East in the North Atlantic towards Iceland, whilst another weak Low of 1014 millibars off the Portuguese Coast. Sunday will see the Greenland Low now off it’s West Coast / over Iceland at 996 millibars, while the Portuguese Low still in the same geographic area at 102 millibars. Sarurday’s UK High will have been pushed slightly East and will now be centred over the mainland UK at 1030 millibars. So a nice chart, but unfortunately, with a distinct lack of Low’s near us, the two that are out there are just too far away to give us anything of merit really, read your individual areas to get a feel of the score………..

OVERALL

Deepest darkest Kernow both on the South and North Coasts would be our call. For those North of the border in the Highlands it’s a mixed bag, filled with pot-luck! Not the greatest of weekends, but there are waves worth scouting for, if you’re keen - and exposed spots could be fun, so…………!?!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Well the South West exposed beaches like Perranporth in the dunes would be worth a gander, we doubt a lot will get into Devon, or at least a lot less will. For those on the East Coast, Sunday could be fun, again exposed beaches that get the swell. So a fun manageable weekend overall for you guys, a break from the big recent beatings you may have taken – have fun…….

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.
