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 9.30am Tuesday. Rest Bay has some nice 2-3ft sets coming through at the moment, although, this will drop as the tide drops. Looks like the wind will increase too but stay cross-off. We'll have 2ft for most of the day and it will increase this afternoon with the incoming tide - maybe 3-4ft but going dark before it gets much bigger. Coney Beach is about 2ft on sets but will drop quickly this morning. 1ftish for most of the day and not picking up until it gets dark. Scarweather Wavebouy 5ft 9sec High Tide 7.30pm

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
