Example Forecast 23/04/11 – 24/04/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Right things have changed somewhat since earlier in the week, the High that was to sit over us, has now been pushed East into Sweden / Poland / the Baltic Sea. Instead the dominant pressure system will be two Low’s in the 980 millibar range off the Eastern Greenland Coast and South West of Iceland / in the North Atlantic. These systems will push cold fronts in our direction - hence the early movement of the High into the Baltic Sea. Sunday will see the Low’s move North along the Greenland Coast into the Denmark Strait (bit between Iceland & Greenland), still throwing fronts in our direction. But due to the High in the Baltic, there will be no blocking of these fronts, and their prevailing winds, which will make things lumpy for most places. Make sure you read your areas to make the most of what there is.

OVERALL

A small fun weekend for most parts (albeit lumpy in the South West), the East Coast will be flat overall, all the action is in the South West and parts of Scotland. Scotland will be the best of the bunch and would be our call.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A fun weekend for you in the South West, by Sunday it will be a bit more challenging. If you want small unchallenging surf, then Wales is your best call. Otherwise challenge yourself in the South West - winds may make it a bit lumpy – but that should be no reason to put you off. Practice, practice, practice! ;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.
