The wind should ease mid morning before increasing from the southwest this afternoon. The surf should continue with occasional sets from a longer period swell. It will probably remain wobbly and then turn messy as the wind increases.
Saturday: The wind is forecast to increase gale force and accompany an increase in swell. Messy, larger surf seems likely. Sunday: A period of lighter wind overnight looks like being spoilt by another Atlantic front on Sunday. The wind is currently forecast to increase onshore again. There should be plenty of medium to large surf.
There continues to be plenty of swell on offer. Strong onshore wind over the weekend may make it difficult to find decent waves.
Quick Guide: Saturday am: Poor, pm: Poor. Sunday 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 still need to look elsewhere on the Peninsula for suitable waves.
