More observation required - I used to live by the old bridge on oystermouth road and have surfed the bay on many occassions.
Why surf there? No crowds, no driving involved and straight in the shower after a cold winter session.
The wave is best opposite St. Helen's rugby club, an hour AFTER high tide, when it walls up for short but punchy rides as the tide first starts to drop. A strong westerly wind actually improves this spot.
