Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Tuesday 22/5/2018 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 moderate northerly, offshore breeze this morning. It was flat. The next surf report will be on Friday morning. The shop will be shut Wednesday and Thursday this week.

High Tide today is at: 14.54 (3.7m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind should ease this morning but may freshen again if it heats up. The usual increase in surf, with the falling tide this afternoon, is unlikely to offer much more than ankle snappers.

Outlook For Surf: High pressure looks set to dominate this week. Depressions are being sent north of our swell window but should continue to produce a good west swell as they pass. This may be fairly long period and struggle to bend into the Irish Sea. Wednesday: The wind is forecast be lighter and an afternoon increase in surf further south may not get in here. Thursday: Probably the most likely day for tiny surf this week. A moderate west swell, down south, may bend enough to give us some small waves.

Quick Guide: Wednesday am: Poor, pm: Poor. Thursday am: Fair (tiny), pm: Fair (tiny).

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.
