The winter weather may not be here yet, but the winter swells certainly are. Molly and I were in full on StormWatch mode today heading to Langland Bay, Gower to see a full line up scramble for some seriously pumping surf on the rising tide.
Molly was straight in the waves, she is such a surf bulldog.
It was a day for short boards, fast and steep. With the winter temperatures still not here there were some summer wetsuits and bare feet in the crowded line up.
The surf was really peaking with some tall faces testings all the short boarders.
We had a great view on the high tide.
Some surfers were really charging the heavy swell.
The waves on their own were worth watching, fantastic curling faces.
This autumn in Gower has been fantastic.
It is not cold at all yet with air temperatures never leaving double figures.
Molly was watching all the riders, and casting a wise experienced eye over the crashing shore break.
Even though it was a scramble, if you were the right place you could get a cracking ride. Plenty of wave face to carve.
…but then you had to get back out again.
Molly needs to get her paws in the water and face in the waves when she is on StormWatch.
What a great afternoon of pumping surf at Langland Bay, Gower. This autumn is really shaping up into a year to remember. With winter just around the corner you can be assured that Molly and I are back on StormWatch, out and about checking on all those Gower winter waves for you, DimExcuses.
