Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Tuesday 19/6/2018 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 no wind at dawn. Waves were glassy but still confused as the tide dropped back. Sets were waist to chest high.

High Tide today is at: 13.23 (4.0m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to increase onshore around lunchtime. This will mess up the surf again. It is also likely to be smaller as the tide fills.

Outlook For Surf: This next wave depression is forecast to clear northeast during Wednesday. This will open up the prospect of a veering to northwest wind. This should happen around lunch time. High pressure is then forecast to remain to the west feeding in a cool northwest flow over the UK. Wednesday: You can see from the WAM that the swell doesn't have very long legs and will fade quickly. We may get a small, cleaner surf Wednesday afternoon. Thursday: Very little swell left to benefit from the northwest wind.

Quick Guide: Wednesday am: Poor, pm:Fair. Thursday am: Poor, 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 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.
