Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Monday 16/7/2018 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). There was a steady but fairly light northerly, offshore breeze by 8.00. Waves were short period and weak. It was less than knee high as the tide filled.

High Tide today is at: 11.11 (4.7 m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to continue light today and back northwesterly. Waves should increase a little after the tide. There was no sign of longer period swell during the push but it is on the buoys and I expect some to arrive later today.

Outlook For Surf: The WAM shows the better swell in UK waters now but will have to bend into The Irish Sea to get up here. Tuesday: The wind is forecast to remain light but may be from the west to northwest. There should be a small swell in the water but we may need the dropping tide to allow it to show. It is likely to be small. Wednesday: The wind should remain light and the swell will have dropped away.

Quick Guide: Tuesday am: Poor , pm:Fair. Wednesday 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.
