Aberavon in The Vale of Glamorgan is a fairly exposed beach/reef/pier break that has pretty consitent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. Waves at the beach tend to peel to the left and in addition there are both left and right reef breaks.. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Water quality is rather poor here.
