Morfa Bychan Surf Guide

Morfa Bychan in Mid Wales is a fairly exposed beach break that has unreliable waves. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the east southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and there is a left hand point break too. Best around mid tide. Submerged rocks are a hazard.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
