Sumpters on Gower is a fairly exposed reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. There is no beach break as well as a right hand reef break.. Best around low tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Watch out for rocks.
