Surf

Langland is popular with the local surfing community due to its convenient location near residential Mumbles and the variety of different waves that can be ridden at different tide levels. At low tide, Crab Island provides what is arguably one of the best shaped and most powerful right hand waves in the country; however, many are put off by the fact that the wave breaks onto the exposed reef, so it is considered far too dangerous for novice surfers. The sandbar which is situated offshore between Langland Point and Crab Island is actually a reef which creates a very powerful and dangerous wave breaking in shallow water. Langland Point offers a more gentle wave on days when the swell is large. At mid-tide, the reef (which is more secluded from the main swell) provides a smaller but crowded wave. At very high tide, the shore-break deposits unwary surfers directly onto stones.
