Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: There was a storm force west to southwesterly at dawn. The sea was, obviously, white. Buoys are not huge because of the limited fetch.

The LIVE Webcam normally updates every 5 minutes.
The power supply to Cilan is currently being upgraded (and storm force winds have not helped the engineers) and the camera is confused by all the off and on nonsense!
Surf Forecast for the rest of the day: The wind should veer westerly by dark but remain gale force.
Outlook For Surf: Tuning colder with more chances of a proper veer to northwest. Westerly swell should continue.
Tuesday: A west to southwest wind and fading windswell will not help anywhere.
Wednesday: The wind should veer northwest and a bigger swell should also arrive.

Quick Guide: Tuesday: am: Poor, pm: Poor. Wednesday: Poor, pm: Poor.
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 - 16.30 (16.00 in winter and 17.00 in high Summer) except Sunday 11.00 - 16.00 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.
