Ogmore-by-Sea in The Vale of Glamorgan is a fairly exposed river break but has quite inconsistent surf, summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the north through to east. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. When it works the river break produces short left handers and longer rights. It's sometimes crowded here. Hazards include rips and pollution.
