Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Sunday 27/8/2016. 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). There was a light onshore, southerly breeze at first light but that had dropped away by 7.30. Bumpy waves were knee high initially but the swell arrived quicker and bigger than I expected and some set waves were head high by the time I finished my surf at 7.30.

High Tide today is at: 05.30 (3.7m), 18.02 (3.9m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to freshen from the north or northwest this morning. This could put a cross wobble on the waves. They should continue through low water but lose some of the size. The wind may drop away again at dusk.

Outlook For Surf: The small Atlantic depression to the southwest of the UK spun with a gale force wind close to the centre but over a short fetch. This looks like it produced a fair size, short lived, swell. Monday: A ridge of high pressure should feed a gentle westerly wind across us most of Monday before it backs southwest ahead of the next front. The swell should have dropped but we can probably squeeze some waves out of optimum tide times. Tuesday: Our local wind is forecast to increase from the southwest as a large Atlantic depression moves closer. A steady, Atlantic swell should also arrive.

Summer 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. Don't forget that the tide plays an important role in wave quality and size at Porth Neigwl: Click here for details and info on how we measure the wave height.
