Hi
I am a new surfer from Fife who hase been surfing at Pease and Coldingham and I am looking for info on St. Andrews since its a fair bit closer for me. Where exactly is best? When is best tide wise? Is it suitable for a keen novice ? Are there other good learning spots in Fife? How do you avoid HRH?
Cheers in advance.
Jock

Jock I am currently living in dundee and have surfed St andrews only a couple of times in 1.5 years.  Its not the best spot for frequent surf.  If you look at a map it is considerably further inland than south of Edinbrugh or north toward Aberdeen.  I have only ever seen it work well on an easterly but that doesn't mean it doesn't work on other variation swells.  I know there are a few local surfers in St A. but i recomend you focus on other spots than st andrews. Try to get in touch with a local contact if you realy want to surf it. They will be able to tel you if it is working or not.

Yea stick to St Andrews, Thurso on it's day is one of the best waves in the uk. Have you got a car? Travel the east coast from Edin up and you'll find some decent beginner spots.

Good Luck
