Classically, September is one of the best months of the year for big clean swells to hit the British Isles. Scotland, Ireland and even Cornwall had pumping solid waves for most of the last month, but I think Wales forgot to read the memo this year. It wasn’t all bad in the land of my fathers though. We did get some lovely surf, albeit on the smaller side of things and the weather was glorious too. A quick trip down west Wales and another to the Wavegarden, sprinkled in with a couple of fun little sessions around Gower was enough to keep most people’s surf stoke alive. And with October right around the corner, excitement is building as some proper autumn power and size is bound to arrive soon enough.
