Broughton Surf Guide

Broughton on Gower is a fairly exposed point break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the southeast with some shelter here from southwest winds. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the best swell direction is from the west. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights and in addition, there is also a left hand point break. Best around mid tide. Sometimes crowded. Take care of rips and rocks.
