- Probably the most suckiest waves in the world, It's like Teahupoo backwards. Definitely the best break i have surfed

bag of wank - Have read various comments from above and cant believe we are talking about the same Southerndown i know! Yes this is a very attractive spot but the surf is pathetic for the vast majority of the year.. west is best!

A good place to surf - A good option for Cardiff based surfers picks up loads of swell and usually has uncrowded peaks. Beautiful sunsets and quality waves.
