February half term surf trip

« on: December 12 2005 10:12:00 »

Just a quick question. Am teaching here in the south east and want to head to Scotland for the half term break next February. Have car will travel but am I waisting my time? North coast looks the best, have read about Thurso etc. Any advice / views would be appreciated.

If you give us an e mail, I can give you some tips in return for surf knowledge wherever you are.

I live near the north coast and the outer islands.

Aussie living in Farnborough. I surf regularly out in North Devon in a small village called Croyde. A number of good breaks in town itself and over the hill at Putsborough and Woolacombe. Plenty of waves for those who know what they are doing although it does get crowded. If you were coming down from Scotland I would also recommend surfing Wales - some quality uncrowded waves ou in Pembrokeshire (Freshwater West stands out and you can sleep in car behing the beach). Have surfed all along the Cornish coast, stand outs being Constantine Bay (uncrowded) and also got some nice waves at Sennen Vove and Whitesands Bay. I avoided traps like Newquay and Fistral - crowd etc.

Hope this helps, you have tweaked my curiosity by mentioning off shore islands in Scotland,
