Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Pictures from the archive. Sunday 10/9/2017. 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). The wind was light first thing but has already increased onshore. There was only tiny chop as the tide filled. There will be no surf report for a few days. Ring us at the shop or look at our Facebook page for the latest reports and outlook.

High Tide today, Sunday is at: 11.19 (4.6m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to increase to gale force as it veers westerly later. The sea will become rough.

Outlook For Surf: There will be no surf report for a few days. Ring us at the shop or look at our Facebook page for the latest reports and outlook. Depressions are crossing the Atlantic to the north of our swell window so we just get the wind and rain without the swell. Sunday: Another depression is forecast to clip northern Britain and our wind should back southwest ahead of it. It could become gale force as it veers westerly later in the day. A buoyant local sea state will probably develop but the main fetch is not in our swell window so waves are likely to remain very short period and fairly weak. It is also likely to be extremely messy. With the wind possibly gale force our hire of surfboards may be restricted. Monday: The best chance of decent surf. The wind should veer northwest again and a local, rough sea should clean up at south facing spots. There won't be a lot of size but there should be something! The quality will depend on how far the wind veers.

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