South East Wales Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the South East Wales Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations.

  1. Porthcawl new logoMember Report 8.45am Saturday. Dropping tide and Rest Bay is about 2ft and surfable on the sets. Its likely to drop a little to low tide but still some surfable sets. There's a wave on the sandbars, so we should get a good 3ft this afternoon. Winds look like they'll stay offshore all day too. Coney Beach is flat and will stay that way for most of the day. We may get 1ft+ around high tide this evening before it goes dark. Actual Wavebouy 3ft 6sec High Tide 5pm
  2. Porthcawl new logoMember Report 9am Friday. Wind has dropped a bit and turned cross off, so we have a great 3-4ft at Rest Bay at the momment. It still around low tide, so it will get bigger towards high tide this afternoon. It looks like the wind may pick up a bit so I guess, earlier is better. Coney Beach is a bit low at the moment, but we should have a well surfable wave, later this afternoon - just before dark. Actual Wavebouy 6ft 9sec High Tide 4.30pm

Eyeball South East Wales Surf Reports are sent in by surfers living or working at the South East Wales surf breaks. We don't publish reports from secret spots and reporters send in wave reports from more popular or indicator breaks to help their local surf community. If you are often in South East Wales and want to get involved we can publish your surf reports anonymously or provide free publicity for your business.

Summary: There are some great waves to be found in South East Wales but you have to be there at the right time to score. Not only do you need to be there when the swell is big enough to force its way up the shallow Bristol Channel but also at the right stage of the tide. If you don’t live locally be sure to check the surf forecasts and our local Wavefinder for the best spots in any given swell and wind direction. The scenery is diverse, ranging from miles of unspoilt Heritage coastline to touristy towns and industry. The water clarity is often low but that is just due to the silt in the Bristol Channel, largely brought down by the River Severn
