Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Thursday 27/7/2017. 7.30 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 fresh onshore, southwest wind again this morning. Chop was up to knee high as the tide pushed in.

High Tide today is at: 11.35 (4.4m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to increase to strong later this afternoon. The surf should build with high tide but will remain a disorganised, short period and rather chaotic mess.

Outlook For Surf: The depression is sat to the immediate northwest of Britain. It is too close and too shadowed by Ireland to provide a decent swell. The southwest wind however, is likely to drive a building, short period sea through St. Georges Channel. A small, satellite, wave depression is forecast to run into Britain on Friday. The track it takes will determine our wind direction and is worth watching. Friday: The wind may drop away for a while if the centre of the wave depression crosses to the south of us. Otherwise a continued onshore flow is likely to drive the messy sea again. It should be bigger than Thursday. Saturday: With low pressure seemingly anchored to our immediate northwest the outlook is never going to be pretty. An onshore wind should ease a few notches and the resultant chop may also drop in size later.

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