THURSDAY 20th OCTOBER This is the last report until 9th November as we are going into a second lockdown.
Next High Tide today: 12.40 (4.5m).
Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) Surf Report: There was a moderate onshore breeze and messy waves were knee high as the tide filled.
Rest of the day: The wind is forecast to ease a little further but there isn't really any swell so I don't expect it to improve at all.

The Quick, Quality 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.
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.
