  1. Eyeball hqEyeball Surfcheck: ‘Sat 19th january - 8:25am - 4-6ft. Looking good out here this morning folks for some head high plus clean as you like sets with no wind to speak of at this time. Catch the daily pushing tide for today if you can for the best of what the weekend has to offer. Tides: 8.6m: low: 10:15am ~ high: 4:30pm.’

  2. Porthcawl new logoMember Report 9am Saturday. A good day. A cracking 15sec period on the swell. Tide is still dropping and Rest Bay is a clean 3ft with light winds. As the tide pushes in we could get some good 4ft sets and looks like it will stay clean for the rest of the day too. High Tide at 5pm so it will be up on the rocks by 4pm - so get in early today. Coney Beach is a little choppy with the light wind blowing into the bay - but we should get 3ft later this afternoon. Scarweather Wavebouy 4ft 15sec High Tide 5pm

Information about the Bolt Head Surf forecast

The above surf forecast table for Bolt Head provides essential information for determining whether the surfing conditions will be good over the next 7 days. A general guide to surfing at Bolt Head can be found by selecting the local surf guide option on the grey menu. Our Bolt Head 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 (Bolt Head) 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 Bolt Head 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.

Bolt Head is 22 km (14 miles) from the city of Dartmouth. If you plan a holiday in South Devon, look for hotels and other accommodation in Dartmouth. Dartmouth has rooms for a wide range of budgets as well as car hire and transport links.
