Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Saturday 10/12/2016. 8.20 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 light, perhaps moderate, onshore breeze this morning. This was a shame because the big swell was being chopped up. Waves were head high, with bigger sets, but very bouncy as the tide dropped.

High Tide today is at: 16.41 (4.2m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: Unfortunately the tide times will not allow an optimum tide time surf today but the wind may drop out further. The surf should tidy up after low water for the filling tide and the size should moderate too.

Outlook For Surf: Plenty of swell for the next week or so. Our local wind will need watching to get the best of it. Sunday: Light to moderate wind should continue but may fall calm at dawn. The big swell should also calm further. Monday: A small frontal wave may continue to flirt with the English Channel. This should help keep our local wind lighter ahead of the next set of Atlantic fronts. An optimist may even suggest the wind could back southeast. Residual swell should keep coming.

Quick Guide: Sunday am: Fair, pm: Fair. Monday am: Fair, pm: Fair.

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 V. Poor. There are 4 quick descriptions: Good, Fair, Poor and V. Poor. Good surf could be anything from knee high to well overhead so there may be times when beginners and less confident surfers may still need to look elsewhere on the Peninsula for suitable waves.

Opening Times: We are open every day 10.00 - 5.00 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.

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 and when the wind is stronger than force 6 - fresh to strong.
