Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Monday 24/10/2016. 9.00 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 fresh offshore, east to northeasterly this morning. Waves were less than knee high as the tide dropped.

High Tide today is at: 16.11 (3.7m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The surf may build a little this afternoon.

Outlook For Surf: A large depression to the southwest is the wrong shape to send much swell our way at the moment. A large west to northwest swell will not be able to bend into the Irish Sea. Tuesday: The wind is currently forecast to be veer southeasterly. A small, short period south swell may provide some small surf. Wednesday: Our wind is forecast to veer more southwest. The small surf is therefore likely to become a choppy mess.

Quick Guide: Tuesday am: Fair (maybe) pm: Poor. Wednesday 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 V. Poor. There are 4 quick descriptions: Good, Fair, Poor and V. Poor.

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.
