Located in on the Inner Hebrides, Scotland, Westport is a quality beach break that offers up some good sections for performance surfing when the conditions line up. The waves here are not always easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. Found right at the North end of Macrhinish Bay.
What are the best surf conditions for Westport?
Gets good between waist-high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is a bit fickle (4/10) and will generally be uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are from the East. The best swells are from the Northwest and West. Works on a low to mid tide.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 14 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 9 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
