Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Friday 23/6/2017. 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 was strong onshore this morning. A choppy sea was beginning to build. Messy surf was waist high as the tide started to drop.

High Tide today is at: 07.51 (4.7m), 20.17 (4.9m).

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind should ease a little this evening but remain strong onshore through the day. The local sea state will build but remain very confused.

Outlook For Surf: A depression is forecast to move east to the north of Scotland into the weekend. Cold fronts should clear east and introduce a cool westerly wind. There is some potential for it to veer northwest at times. A small Atlantic swell should last into the weekend before the stronger west to northwest Irish Sea windswell hides it. Saturday: The wind should ease behind the cold fronts but a shallow trough packing in behind the current fronts may delay the clearance east. Once into the cooler air the wind may fall lighter for several hours before freshening from the west, northwest later. Residual windswell should combine with 10 second Atlantic swell but the wind is probably going to continue to chop it up. Sunday: The wind could become strong again as the depression moves into The North Sea. Irish Sea chop could overpower any remaining swell but a veering of the wind could allow a bit more shelter. The big spring tides will kill it at low water.

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