Rhossili Surf Guide

Rhossili on Gower is a fairly exposed beach break that has quite consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the east with some shelter here from south winds. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell angle is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded.
