Do not park in the Redcliffe Flats, the residents do not like surfers and your car will be clamped and it'll cost you £50 to get it unclamped.
It's quiet a relaxed place and people are often chatty and open in the water.
Sloppy break but ideal for beginners and considering the other local beach spot is Langland, Caswell is the better choice for learners. Can be sheltered at hightide from south westerly winds. Left and rights on the beach and a left off the west end of the bay.

SPONGEDOG - mellowest break on gower when its a smaller swell, and a really cool wedge in front of the steps on high tide.
rare but well worth it when its on.
