Looking for some info on Scotland's surf scene.« on: March 05 2005 17:03:00 »
I'm going to be visiting family in Dundee for 2 weeks and am looking to do some surfing while I'm there. Traveling won't be a problem, I just need to know where to go, what kind of breaks there are, and if there are places around to rent boards. I'm coming from San Diego, California so its pretty inconvenient to bring my own board. If anyone has some info for me I'd be grateful!

If you can get hold of a board, then head straight for Thurso East. World class reef on its day. (if it's summertime you are coming, you may very easily be out of luck though)

its $10 per foot for your board with american airlines and its pretty difficul to rent a board in scotland compared to san diego! and anyway even if u have a long board you would be better taking that on the plane than paying for a rental board. i'm originally from scotland living in LA at the moment - dont keep your hopes up for surf in scotland, freezing water, mushy, but sometimes can be good.put it this way it isn't trestles! would be interestin for you tho!
