  1. Porthcawl new logoMember Report 8am Thursday. The tide is still dropping, but we have a small wave now and again with offshore winds. Looks like there's a small wave out on the sandbars and the wavebouy is showing 2ft and 12 sec, so we could possibly get a small surfable wave as the tide pushes in later this morning, afternoon - in the 2ft region again. We may have a small wave as the tide comes off the rocks this evening but won't last long and will be almost flat again by 7-8pm. Coney Beach is flat and looks like it will stay flat. Actual Wavebouy 2ft 12 sec High Tide 3pm

  3. Eyeball hqEyeball Surfcheck: ‘Thursday 24th may 6am - 1-2ft. Slightly smaller than expected, but still as clean as you like with some knee to thigh high sets and super light offshore easterly breezes. Catch the daily pushing tide for a good chance of some waist high sets. Tides: 7.5m: low: 7:25am - high: 1:45pm - low: 1:45pm.’

Information about the Aberavon Surf forecast

The above surf forecast table for Aberavon provides essential information for determining whether the surfing conditions will be good over the next 7 days. A general guide to surfing at Aberavon can be found by selecting the local surf guide option on the grey menu. Our Aberavon surf forecast is unique since it includes wave energy (power) that defines the real feel of the surf rather than just the height or the period. If you surf the same spot (Aberavon) regularly then make a mental note of the wave energy from the surf forecast table each time you go. Very soon you may start to choose your surf days based on the wave energy alone combined with our forecast of favourable offshore wind conditions. Our star ratings will help here and of course you will also find the usual wave height and period predictions on our surf forecasts as well as a full break down of the swell components under our advanced users option (to reveal that, click the little Einstein character under the tide times).

Further information to help with frequently asked questions about our surf forecast for Aberavon may be found under the help tab on the top menu and also by moving your mouse over the question marks on the surf forecast table itself. Please always bear in mind that the forecast is for near-shore open water and local factors at each surf break influence the actual breaking wave height, such as the beach / reef profile, water depths offshore and shelter.
