Will be in Scotland July.Should I Bring Board?

I am an avid norcal surfer, Will be in Scotland in July, is is worrth hauling my boards over there, paying the airlines, looking like an idiot in london and glasgow, carring a board around.  I cannot get a good read on if there is surf there in the summer or not.  Does thurso break in the summer? I have no problems taking my boards, but definately dont want to if its totally the off season, i would rather spend the board transport money in a pub. Whats my chances of scoring in July around the Thurso area.

you should be able to pick up some waves. most consistently your better going in nov - april for winter swell but once again you should get something so i would definitely bring your board. pritty baltic but in july there'l be some heat comin down which is beautiful. awesome setting

Hi mkirker,
Its frustrating as it is living here as I live a few hours from the North Coast of Scotland. I went a few days ago on a fairly big north swell for the summer. The winds wer onshore, so I thought as it was a big north swell I would go to Oldeshoremore. So I drove all the way there it was lcean but tiny, Swell was not quite NE so it missed it.
Thats kind of the nature fo Scottish surfing.
You are better to stay right near the break ie Thurso.
Its not the pacific, I have surfed on the pacific and its a lot more consistant.Winter is much  better.
E mail me if you want to know where the best place in Summer is in Scotland as I dont like to keep saying it here incase it gets too busy! However, its pretty easy to work out!
