Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind is forecast to remain southeasterly and fairly light. The surf is unlikely to improve much today.
Outlook For Surf: Glorious, sunny, autumn weather is forecast to last another day. A depression is now forecast to move in from our southwest and this could begin to introduce some surf during the weekend. Hurricane Humberto is in our sell window and things could get substantially bigger into next week.
Saturday: By Saturday the fetch length of the south to southeast flow may have extended sufficiently to build a southeast sea state. These are always short period but it may begin to provide some surf.
Sunday: The progress east of the Atlantic frontal system is impossible to forecast. If it remains just to our west we will probably be under a fresh southeast wind but, as it nudges east of us, the wind could veer. There should be a little bit of short period windswell and a possible mid distance, southwest swell if the low assumes a good shape today..

Quick Guide: Saturday: am: Poor, pm: Fair, Sunday: am: Fair, pm: Fair.
The Quick Guide is a subjective appraisal by West Coast Surf Shop of the surfing conditions at Porth Neigwl (Hells Mouth). Poor surf may be perfect for our surf school and beginners. 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 high 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. Don't forget that the tide plays an important role in wave quality and size at Porth Neigwl.
