Todays Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Sunday 20/8/2017. 7.30 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 hint of offshore land breeze this cool morning. Cold feet in the dew for sure! It was glassy but waves were only knee high and really weak as the tide filled from dawn.

High Tide today is at: 07.32 (4.3m), 19.55 (4.7m)

Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to increase from the southeast as a front moves northeast. The surf may build a little as the tide starts to drop this morning before the wind picks up.

Outlook For Surf: A rather slack area of low pressure is failing to produce much swell mid Atlantic despite having ex hurricane Gert tied up in it. It has thrown all forecast models into chaos however and it's movement is not possible to forecast. A small swell should arrive but our local wind will be crucial, as always. Monday: The latest models have a relatively slack pressure gradient over us on Monday but a slight southerly wind may mess up the small swell. Tuesday: It is currently impossible to forecast a wind direction for Tuesday. Atlantic swell may begin to fade.

Quick Guide: Monday am: Fair, pm: Poor. Tuesday 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.
