Boiler Left on Gower is a reasonably exposed reef break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. There is no beach break and there is left hand reef break too.. Best around low tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Take care to avoid the rocks.
