Head on out through the Gower...Go towards Rhosilli (NOT 'Gennith)...go past Rhosilli turning...park at Port Eynon if this is your first time here...walk along the cliffs to your right till you come to a large opening approx. 300m wide with rocks in front of you...the wave is directly infront of these rocks...wear booties of some sort as the rocks are bloody sharp!

Get an a map to help with the directions...You can also work out the easier parking spot with it...just a little time and effort is needed!
This is a sweet spot...although it is probably the weakest of the Gower Reefs, you still need to be of a respectable level of skill to surf it - for the sake of yourself and the other surfers who frequent it. It's also relatively easy to work out where the other reefs are from this spot as on a clear day (in Wales!?!?!?) you can see some of the other reefs breaking...
Generally uncrowded...beautiful scenery...decent wave and friendly seals - what more cold you want?...tropical water, consistent off-shores, solid swells, fields of marijuana, topless belles bathing on the rocks and a small cocktail bar at the waters edge? Don't we all!!!

Tidy - I loves the boiyler cos it brakes mellow like and u can ride the rollers al the way to the beach. I ave heard of the super salmon and it is true thay has caught it I saw a man with a pair of waders and he ad it on his rod and he way lovin it. If you likes boiler get to the righthander at Lougher it is a secret spot that only works on small swells!

hot water - yeah ur right about the hot water. i surfed it on Xmas day in only my speedos and my tackle didnt even shrink an inch. i didnt see the killer super salmon though, rumour has it they caught the 30ft beast and you buy a hefty fillet from the fish shop next to the white rose in mumbles. all you have to do is show your gower gays tshirt and theyll wrap you up a nice fresh fishy meal

- Better leave this joint alone, there is a killer salmon there and it will eat your eyes out. The water is actually boiling as well so it will burn you when you jump off the rock, you'll end up with no skin and no eyes so leave it.
