Water Sports in Gower, Mumbles and Swansea
Body boarding

Gower lends itself to a large range of water sports, such as surfing, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and water skiing. There is also plenty of opportunity for a leisurely swim or a little paddle in the shallows. Most of the beaches do NOT have a lifeguard, so don't forget to stay safe and check the tides. Some people are fortunate enough to have their own equipment, but for those who don't or would like a 'taster' session, there are a number of companies listed below that can provide you with more information.

Personally, I cannot comment further about water sports on Gower, but if you have any particular stories, photos or experiences that you would like to share with us, please drop me an email (details on the contact us page) and I will add it to this page.

To view up to date surf conditions in Rhossili/Llangennith visit Llangennith Surf Cam.
