Here we are for 2022. Daily surf report and 2 day outlook. There is no update on Wednesday and Sunday  

Thursday 18th August

The NEW LIVE Webcam is great when it works but our location is still prone to weather, power cuts and phone line interruptions.

This surf report relies on website sales to keep going, please consider us when next buying online. Use it or lose it.

Remember: A veering wind clocks clockwise (eg: west veering northwest or east veering southerly) and a backing wind clocks anticlockwise (eg: west backing southwest or south backing southeast)..

Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: 18th August. There was a light to moderate, onshore at dawn. It was flat and ruffled at low water.


High Tide 18.8.22:  13.30 3.8m

The rest of today: The wind is forecast to freshen further this morning and chop may begin to build. I do not expect much of an increase in surf today though. 

Outlook: A depression, up by Iceland, is fairly deep. The majority of swell production is not in our window. Fronts, ahead of the storm system, are crossing us today. The wind should freshen ahead and ease and veer behind. This should lead us into a lighter west wind overnight tonight. The wind should back a little  Friday and increase later in the day. A short period, small sea should be running following the short fetch of moderate, onshore wind. Steady, moderate to fresh west to southwest wind through Saturday should provide some small, short period and messy surf.

Opening Times: We are normally open every day 10.00 - 16.00 (16.30 in summer) but we are occasionally closed on Wednesdays and Sundays outside school holidays. During good surf we may be a little late in/early to close. Call us if unsure 01758 713067.

Hire equipment (Surfboards and wetsuits) are hired out on a first come basis and we often run out by 12.00. 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. Don't forget that the tide plays an important role in wave quality and size at Porth Neigwl.
