Surfing Borth Beach: Surf Spot Guide

This long stretch of beach offers a wide range of peaks on all stages of the tide, but needs a solid south westerly groundswell to really get it going. When the winds are offshore (easterly) and there’s enough swell hitting it, there are good waves to be had. There’s a left point at the south end of the bay. The beach is beginner friendly and lifeguarded in the summer. Though, low tide uncovers petrified wood, and high tide submerges wooden groyne posts to watch out for.

Borth Beach - What Waves, When

Low is less consistent than other stages of the tide, but it can still be surfed. A petrified forest is uncovered at this stage of the tide.

Borth’s peaks start getting better at mid to high tide. You’ll get some nice peelers, some might even be steep, but more often than not it’ll be a fairly average ride.

Needs a solid south westerly groundswell to push through and wrap into the west facing bay to get decent waves, which doesn’t happen all that often. The south end of the bay can get some south / south west wind shelter so take advantage of it when possible. There are many different peaks to choose from, and other spots to be explored around the area.

Borth Beach – Out of the Water
