Gale summertime - very rarely does Gale beach get good surf in the summer,if it did there is way to many people on the beach or in the water to surf.although september can be good.goodluck.

Gale - This is gale beach right... used to surfing in wales.. Hows the surf during the summer months? Also what kind of skill level would you recommend to surf here as i have a few mates who are going who will probably like to give it a go but have never surfed before. Cheers in advance.
