Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Friday 22/8/2014 7.00 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). There was a light to moderate northwest breeze this morning. Waves were just less than knee high coming off full tide..

High Tide today is at: 06.54 (3.7m), 19.14 (3.9m).

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to ease today but may remain steady due to an afternoon sea breeze. Waves should drop away further with the lower tide.

Outlook For Surf: Our local wind is forecast to decrease into the weekend as a ridge of high pressure nudges in from the west. There isn't any North Atlantic southwest swell aimed at us close by so I expect it to go flat. There is a tiny southern hemisphere swell that may be observed if the wind falls as light as forecast by Sunday morning. A fairly large and organised Atlantic depression is coming at us from the southwest this weekend and should produce a fair swell. The track of the system over The UK is, obviously, open to question but will dictate how good our waves are. Current Met Office models pass it to the south of us which would be excellent (but experience suggests it will be to our north and therefore drag a load of onshore wind too).

Summer Opening Times: We are open every day 10.00 - 5.00 except Sunday 11.00 - 4.30 and we try and stay 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.
