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 8am Wednesday. Low tide and Rest Bay is a little messy but 2ft. We should have about 2-3ft just before high tide this afternoon and its likely to give us 2-3ft again this afternoon on the dropping tide. Wind is increasing though, so likely to be choppy most of the day. Coney Beach is almost flat at the moment and will give us 1-2ft around high tide but thats likely to be messy too with South East wind blowing into the bay. Actual Wavebouy 3ft 5sec High Tide 1.30pm

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
