Was the question asked whilst sat in the line up this morning out at Sunset beach. Yes we do in fact, there was some guys enjoying a gower surf lesson at Caswell beach Saturday morning. The guys all nearly fell off their boards with surprise, they didn't even realise that we surfed in the UK, perhaps I should get them a copy of Surf Nation by Alex Wade.
British surfers are hardcore surf junkies willing to put up with the worst conditions, in fact I remember Carwyn Williams praying for big South west storms as they produced perfect conditions for Langland beach, which you can take a peak at from clicking here 'gower surfing cam'
Anyway with the wetsuit technology available in surf shops today the water is warm even in Iceland. All our gower surfing customers get to wear five mill winter wetsuits, boots and gloves so yes you can surf all year round and as we all know the best waves are in the winter.
I have been wearing an Xcel 2 mil shorty all the time whilst surfing on the North shore keeps me warm as toast and helps with the floatation!
Here is a picture of the North shore and for live cam and surf report click here 'north shore surf report and news'
Anyway it is Saturday night and time for a pint have a good surfing weekend and stay warm and if you did want gower surfing lessons or surfboard hire contact us.
