Located on the Gower Peninsula in Southern Wales, Langland Bay has a few different options to surf depending on the tide. At high tides the shore break on the beach is good but as it drops a left reef materializes. Once low tide arrives a few more options present themselves; Middle Of The Bay, The Sandbar and Shit Pipes. The waves here are easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a combination of rock and sand for the most part.
What are the best surf conditions for Langland Bay?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is not the most consistent (4/10) and will usually have a crew on it when it’s working (6/10). The best winds are from the North. The best swells are from the Southwest and West. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 17 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best as water temps drop to 8 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
