Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Thursday 22/6/2017. 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). The wind has just veered northwest and was light to moderate in strength. There was no surf.

High Tide today is at: 06.59 (4.5m), 19.28 (4.7m).

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind should back southwest through the day. It should stay light to moderate. The surf is unlikely to increase.

Outlook For Surf: The wind is forecast to come onshore fresh to strong tomorrow before veering west to northwest and easing into the weekend. Some Atlantic swell is in production but it is small and westerly so we may not see much of it here. Friday: The wind may increase strong for a while and build a local sea state. This should slowly show signs of slightly longer fetch waves too. It is likely to stay fairly small and very choppy though. Saturday: The wind should veer westerly and ease into Saturday. A legacy of Irish Sea windswell should combine with a small, Atlantic, west swell but optimum tide times will probably be needed to squeeze anything useable out of it.

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