from seattle to glasgow to study next spring« on: April 18 2006 03:04:00 »
I will be travelling next spring from Seattle Wa. to study at Glasggow school of art. I am an avid surfer here, i will be there for about 6 mo. so I need some waves!
Is it easy to find other surfers in Glasgow willing to share a car with a young surf gal such as myself?
Also, was looking at the east coast; how long does it take to get there from Glasgow.
I don't know if I should drive, the whole driving in the left lane freaks me out!
Thanks for any feedback

Hi there is some sort of surf club in Glasgow,
with the university,
I met some of them on the north coast one september and they had a car.....
I dont know how to contact them though.
There are loads of other people from Glasgow who surf too,
you should have no trouble.....

Reckon would be easy to hook up a lift, your in a goodish spot in Glasgow, not far from Pease and Coldingham, but not a million miles away from the NE coast either..
P.s. Drop me an email with what you ride n dates n stuff I'll fill you in on some beaches.

Hello surfer gal. I live in Glasgow, I studied art and I went (for a brief while to the RGU surf club in Aberdeen when I studied there). I just noticed your post in a search engine. I drive but I reckon the east coast is where you catch the good waves in Scotland (Thurso in particular) It's about 4 hours perhaps less to get up there from Glasgow. I would happily escort you to where you want to go in exchange for some surfing lessons as I am a mere novice and wish to make big improvements(that's what I was looking for when I googled you). I'll keep an eye open for you responce.
take it easy

sounds good, will keep in touch. I think it is less than four hours to the east coast; how are the roads there? Do you have to pay tolls? I drive around 2.5 hours from Seattle to surf and I think the coast is further.
Anyway will keep your email on file.

the popular and nearest breaks on east coast are 2 hrs from glasgow.
North Shore(thurso etc) is 5 hrs
West coast break 3 hrs
Western isles get a ferry!

also, in response to previous post, Thurso is on North coast and its 5 hrs minimum from Glasgow. if your doing day trips you have 2 choices, west coast 3 hrs, or east coast breaks 2 hrs. You'll be able to meet up with the glasgow uni surf club, useful for contacts etc. they aint that good tho. & no toll roads here!

Also, don't want to be a burdon but is my 5-4 good for January water temps? Here it is around 46ºF to 50ºF in the winter months. Oh well, I am sure I will figure it all out.
