Swell sizeStarts working at 1.0m-1.5m / 3ft-5ft and holds up to 3m+ / 10ft+
Best tide positionAll tides
Best tide movementRising and falling tides
Week crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Not very hollow. Middle reef, shit pipe and the point best suited to longboarders. Langland dose not work at high tide it just dumps unless there is a big swell. High tide works better when there is a strong on shore wind because it dose not dump as much.
Beginners should stick to the middle of the bay (beach break). Best suited to longboarders.
More experienced can try right hand point (west end)
East end also has reef break (experience needed): this is <b>Crab Island</b> and works only at low tide.It's quite shallow and sucky.
Old and young come here. Good atmosphere but respect needs to be shown to gower crew.
Great spot to surf with plenty of variety to choose from.
Needs decent swell to get working though. ie. llangennith needs to be 5foot+

Serves you right - Secret Spots .......it's all right for a bunch of poms to turn up around the world and have the locals put up with your shit surfing skills ....but if you pull into one of the breaks the booze fuelled meatheads want to fight .Stay in the pub mate
