Sheeps Jaw Surf Guide

Sheeps Jaw on Gower is a fairly exposed reef break Offshore winds blow from the south southeast with some shelter here from southwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around low tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. It can even get crowded enough to be dangerous.
