Example Forecast 19/03/11 – 20/03/11 – Tuesday Morning Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A High of 1032 millibars will sit over the mainland UK on Saturday, but there will be one major Low of 974 millibars East of Southern Greenland and South West of Iceland – so not far from North West Scotland – sort of, if you see what we are saying!?! There will also be a minor Low of 1014 millibars in the Mid-Atlantic way West of Portugal – how this will effect us at this time is unclear. But we can say that the High pressure over us will be generating a lot of Easterly / South Easterly winds, the strength of which will have a big impact on the timing of the impact of swell on us. So make sure you stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

A mixed bag, parts of Scotland will be good (and the biggest of anywhere), the East Coast will be flat. The South Coast small and lumpy, and the South West hot-dogging size, assuming the winds don’t ruin it. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

Another fun weekend and very manageable for you guys, not too big and fun overall. Just mind you don’t get in the way of the more adept hot-doggers who might make it through the section. As with crossing the street look in all directions or be heading to the ding repair shop! 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.
