Steel City

Surfing with Chris 'Guts' Griffiths

Across the bay from Swansea lies one of the most industrial areas in South Wales. Port Talbot is home to many engineering factories and one of the largest steelworks in Europe.

It is also home to one of Wales’ premier surf breaks. Nestled in the shadow of the smoke stacks and giant cranes you will find Aberavon Beach. The ‘AV’ as the local surfers refer to it, is a classy A frame peak with a long history of producing top quality surfers.

No Welsh team would be complete without at least one or two AV standouts in its ranks.
