Example Forecast 02/04/11 – 03/04/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a Low of 970 millibars in the Greenland / Norwegian Sea, with another South West of Iceland at 980 millibars. Two Highs of significance, one European / Eastern European at 1020 millibarss, whilst the other will be in the Southern Mid-Atlantic at 1016 millibars. By Sunday the line-up will have changed as the North Westerly Low will have continued on a track of North East into the Greenland / Barents Sea at 974 millibars, whilst the South Western Icelandic Low will have moved East too, and now be between Iceland and Scotland at 984 millibars. Meanwhile a new Low of 970 millibars off the Eastern Canadian Coast will start to move into the Atlantic, but the High off Portugal at 1024 millibars and the now weaker European High will lessen the swell and the winds effecting the South West of the UK.

OVERALL

The Scottish North Coast 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…..

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging overhead weekend for you guys in the South West, safe mellow places like Newquay Town beaches or Putsborough are your best bet. Have fun, know your limits, and push then one rung higher……! ;0)

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.
