Fall Bay Reef Surf Guide

Fall Bay Reef on Gower is a quite exposed reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Ideal winds are from the south with some shelter here from northwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. Both left and right reef breaks. Best around low tide. A popular wave that can get growded. Rocks are a hazard.
