Example Forecast 02/04/11 – 03/04/11 – Tuesday Early Bird Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A Low of 992 millibars will wedge itself between Northern Ireland and North West Scotland on Saturday, whilst another Low of 992 millibars will be North East of the Shetlands and moving East towards Norway. These systems will be pushed East by three Low’s in the 980-ish millibar range around Iceland. The High pressure will be in the Mediterranean at 1020 millibars pushing from the South up. But what which will prevail?! – the Outlook at this time suggests the Low’s will win, as the combined Low’s will push through the near Atlantic, and wrap around Ireland and into us. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

The Scottish North Coast on Sunday will be the place, but the South West (especially on Saturday) will be fun too. Search, head for spots with good banks / points / rocks to make the most of the generally favourable winds. Read your individual areas and enjoy the waves….. But stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging overhead Saturday for you guys in the South West, swell will slacken a tad overnight, but build as Sunday goes on. Have fun, know your limits, and push then one rung higher……! ;0) 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.
