Outlook: Atlantic depressions are showing more autumnal power and size but we remain shadowed behind Ireland from the bulk of swell. Locally a front is stalling in the Irish Sea and a shallow wave developing on it. This should render our wind cyclonic into Saturday and charts suggest few isobars into Sunday too. A Scandinavian Anticyclone is holding ground and some models suggest that it could become more intense and keep the Atlantic systems at bay a while longer. This means that the small portion of west swell that bends into the Irish Sea should be fairly wind free this weekend but it may remain small and need prime tide times.
Opening Times: We are normally open every day 10.00 - 16.30 (16.00 in winter) except Sunday 11.00 - 15.00 and we are closed on Wednesday. During good surf we may be a little late in. 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.
