26/05/12 – 27/05/12 – Thursday Version......
A High of 1032 millibars centred over the North Sea and much of the UK on Friday, by Saturday it will start to be squeezed by a Greenland Low pressure system North West of us at about 1004 millibars. Meanwhile another Low of 1012 millibars will move up from France and the Mediterranean. This Low will move into Biscay, whilst the Greenland Low will move into the Near Mid-Atlantic, the North Sea High will be squeezed up around Scandinavia for the period. In the West the two Low’s will dance a jig rotating around the Azores and Biscay on Sunday and into early next week. The result of all this is the dominance of the High and the Easterly winds that are associated with it. The Low pressures, will just not really be deep enough and the dominant High will just squash any real swell from getting in, especially as the weekend goes on. Read your individual areas to make the most of what there is…..
Well the only hope is the far South West and super swell amplifying spots, everywhere else will be weaker and smaller – if that is possible!?! Sunday looks to be lax and mostly flat everywhere…….
BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS
The South West will have a fun rideable wave for you guys, Sunday may be a lot smaller though…….

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.
