Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Tuesday 27/9/2016. 8.50 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 southerly this morning. The surf was a choppy mess and chest high as the tide dropped.

High Tide today is at: 6.24 (3.8m), 18.44 (4.1m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind should veer westerly in the next hour and ease. Light to moderate westerly wind should then continue all day but may back southwest this evening. It should also become sunny again. The surf is likely to stay messy but may look ok under blue skies at times.

Outlook For Surf: Plenty of surf but the wind could continue to be a problem.. Wednesday: The wind is forecast to increase from the southwest through the day and could be strong by evening. The surf is, therefore, likely to remain poor. It should be a bit bigger than today. Thursday: As a front clears east the wind should slowly ease but it is currently forecast to continue onshore. Some long period swell should also arrive but is likely to be buried beneath the surface chop.

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

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.
