Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Thursday 14/12/2017 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 fresh to stong onshore, westerly wind this morning. The surf was choppy and head high as the tide dropped out.

High Tide today is at: 17.35 (3.9m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to veer a little more into the northwest and remain strong to gale force. A huge sea (32 feet off southwest Ireland this morning) is charging down from the northwest and this is unlikely to wrap well into the Irish Sea. There should be an increase through the day though as south facing spots clean up a little too.

Outlook For Surf: As the depression that is driving the huge northwest swell moves east of northern Britain a northerly wind should flood south over the UK. Friday: The wind should be northerly by dawn and residual seas and Atlantic swell should offer some cleaner waves. Saturday: The wind could back northwest and the swell decrease which would limit our options.

Quick Guide: Friday am: Good, pm: Fair. Saturday am: Fair, 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.

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.
