Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Sunday 15/1/2017. 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 surf report is having a rest while we fiddle with some code this week. It should be back Friday or Saturday. The Facebook report will be updated when the swell arrives...... Today, Sunday it is tiny up to high tide again. It may show a little increase as the tide pulls back but it will remain a bit chopped up in the west to northwest breeze.

High Tide today is at: 8.58 (5.1m).

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind should continue fresh from the west today. The surf should build a little as the tide starts to drop but is likely to stay tiny.

Outlook For Surf: A ridge of high pressure should build over the UK this week. This is good news as it should calm our wind and eventually, possibly introduce a continental easterly. Depressions are also forecast to show in our window from early in the week so we should see some surf later this week. The Bracknel update this morning has a great looking chart by Wednesday. Monday: The wind should fall much lighter so any waves will be Atlantic in origin. I expect some small, background surf as the tide falls back. Tuesday: Possibly even less wind. Unfortunately there doesn't look like there will be any swell yet.

Quick Guide: Monday am: Poor, pm: Poor. Tuesday 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 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 may still need to look elsewhere on the Peninsula for suitable waves.

We are closed on New Years Day. 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.
