Surfing Langland Bay: Surf Spot Guide

There are a range of waves available at Langland Bay and as the tide moves, certain spots open up and others stop working. At high tide there’s a shore dump. Near mid tide, the reef starts working. Just after that, the lefts start to work. Langland is near Swansea and offers westerly wind shelter, so it can get busy when it’s blown out everywhere else. It needs a fair amount of swell to start working. There are plenty of other spots around this area and the rest of Gower, and familiarising yourself with what works in different conditions will be rewarding.

Langland Bay is generally not considered a beginners spot, so if you’re just starting out you’ll benefit from going to one of the other beaches such as Caswell Bay, which is just slightly west of Langland.

Langland Bay - What Waves, When

Different waves open up at different stages of the tide. The waves range from mellow to sucky reef, providing something for every competent surfer here. At low tide there’s a sandbar, a reef and Rotherslade lefts working.

Mid tide sees the lefts and the reef working.

The high tide provides a shore break.

The area provides many different waves and peaks, which are all dependent on conditions and tide stage, so experienced surfers should look around and surf the wave that takes their fancy.

Langland Bay – Out of the Water

For surf purchase, hire and to arrange lessons, it’s not far to travel to Mumbles. There are also plenty of other surf shops and schools in Gower.

Langland Bay offers beachside cafe / restaurant / bar options for post-surf refreshment. There’s more choice the further you’re willing to travel.

The same goes for accommodation, although as Langland is a holiday destination, the choice in the near vicinity is comprehensive, including guesthouses, BnB’s, apartments and more.

Swansea is famous for its nightlife, so if the surf wasn’t enough, you can burn more energy there.
