Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: Tuesday June 25th

There was no wind this morning. A legacy of overnight, light, onshore wind has left a hint of texture on an, otherwise, glassy sea surface. There was also just a hint of swell but waves were less than ankle high as the tide filled.  

High Tide:   25.6.24. 11.00   4.3m

The rest of today: The wind is forecast to freshen from the north later today. It could become moderate by late afternoon, especially if the sun comes out again. There is likely to be a slight increase in wave size as the tide draws back again but it is unlikely to get above knee high. 

We have a full size break of the incredible 5/4 mm RIP CURL Hooded, Chest Zip wetsuit. Soooo flexible for a full on winter wetsuit

Outlook: A depression, leaving Newfoundland today, is very interesting. It is small but is forecast to get tied up in the Jet Stream trough that is low slung to the west of the UK. It has the potential for rapid deepening as it slides toward and past northwest Ireland. Once this close in, it becomes of no real interest to us but while it is far enough west and south we can hope it starts strengthening over waters that have some chance of bending into the Irish Sea. This swell should reach us by Thursday evening. Locally, we may have some onshore wind by then and this could become strong if the depression clips the UK. Wednesday should be glassy again with just a hint of background swell.
