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.....

Hi Trina,
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..

Happy hunting.

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!

Enjoy

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.
