Visitor Reviews of Llantwit Major

KB from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

Llantiwt is an underrated break.
When other local spots have nil surf the topography and tide can kick up some nice waves.
There's a significant rip over the rocky point.
Infamous for its localism things have improved a fair bit over the years but occasionally there's still some tension when it's busy.
On a good day left and right rides can be had simultaneously which shortens the line up wait.
Groms can get wet just off the beach sandy area but waves tend to be dumpy here.
To the left of the sandy area (looking offshore) is the most consistent area. On the right day surf here can reach overhead and it's worth bearing in mind that this dumps onto rock.
Beach is exposed so windy days can spoil the waves.
Local town is very good. Ten mins walk from beach.
Look out for squaddies: there's Paras and Marines barracked nearby (Saint Athan camp) and they do have a habit of kicking off for no good reason.
