StormWatch, Langland Bay Going Off, 7th November 2015

Langland Surf

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 Langland

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.

High Tide Langland

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.

Autumn Surf Gower

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.

StormWatch Surf Bulldog, Caswell Bay, March 29th 2015

It has been a pretty dark, wet and windy weekend, culminating in 50 to 60 mph winds today. ¬†With my swaying fence looking like it won’t make it to April and the scafolding groaning on the roof, I decided ignorance is bliss and headed down to a dark Caswell Bay with Molly and Sharon.

The Gower Live Website was saying Caswell had head to overhead surf, but with this wind it was a nasty mess. If you could get out through the punishing white water there was a head high face, but it was looking dark and mean.

Several surfers were giving it a try, and fair play some serious waves were getting ridden. We on the other hand we staying with playing stick in the shallows.

Two surfers decided to brave it with short boards. Molly ran down to give them some heavy swell pointers.

Before focusing back on her stick.

People tell you French bulldogs don’t swim, but Molly says different.

And if she is not in the sea she is in the river.

Looking majestic as always.

This is one surf bulldog looking forward to the end of StormWatch and for a spring to emerge.

One thing is sure, whatever the weather we will be down the Gower beaches, DimExcuses.
