Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Friday 21/4/2017. 8.45 Click 'Refresh' for the latest report (or click the Facebook button for instant surf and shop news - you do not need to be a member). While there is no surf in prospect we are going to do some work on the site so the next Surf Report will not be until Thursday or Friday next week. I have done an extended outlook below but you can always ring us at the shop for updates 01758 713067. The wind was light and westerly again this morning. It was flat.

High Tide today is at: 17.04 (3.4m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The neap tide will not effect it today and the wind is forecast to remain light westerly. The waves will remain tiny.

Outlook For Surf: The Anticyclone is forecast to move west. This will allow successive plunges of cold arctic air. It could get particularly cold on Tuesday/Wednesday. The depression to the west of The Azores is still there but I suspect the small swell aimed at us will not amount to much. A rough, north west, sea state may build mid week as a possible gale force wind drives down from the north. None of this is good for surf. Saturday: Our wind should continue light. It is forecast to swing offshore so any tiny waves should, at least, be clean. Sunday: Light and variable wind seems likely again with only a small possibility of a distant southwest swell. Early next week: A major depression is forecast to drive down from the north. Wind could reach gale force but is likely to only produce a rough local sea. Shelter (or in the teeth of the onshores) could provide some surf.

Quick Guide: Saturday am: Poor, pm: Poor. Sunday am: Poor, pm: Poor.

The Quick Guide is a subjective appraisal by West Coast Surf Shop of the surfing conditions at Porth Neigwl (Hells Mouth). It is based on surface conditions more than wave size because, in our opinion, a clean waist high wave is far better than a wind ravaged overhead one. It does not reflect conditions on other beaches which could be perfect while Porth Neigwl is Poor. There are 3 quick descriptions: Good, Fair, and Poor. Good surf could be anything from knee high to well overhead so there may be times when beginners and less confident surfers still need to look elsewhere on the Peninsula for suitable waves.

Opening Times: We are open every day 10.00 - 4.30 (5.00 in Summer) except Sunday 11.00 - 4.30 and we are closed on Wednesday outside school holidays. During good surf we may be a little late in. Call us if unsure 01758 713067

We do not let hire go after 1.00pm as all hire equipment needs to be returned by 4.30pm - unless you are having it for a few days. Please note we can't do surfboard hire to under 18's or when the wind is stronger than force 6 - fresh to strong. We are restricted to one board per adult. Don't forget that the tide plays an important role in wave quality and size at Porth Neigwl: Click here for details and info on how we measure the wave height.
