thurso suitable for a novice?

« on: April 06 2008 15:04:00 »

Hi there,

I have surfed a few times, have got the hang of standing up on the board, still a bit wobbly though! Just wondering if anyone who's surfed at Thurso would recommend it for a relative novice? I've surfed successfully at Tiree and Dunbar, how does it compare to those two places? Or should I leave it until I'm a bit more experienced?

Grateful for any advice,


Nick B

i wouldnt surf thurso leave it to the big guns, but there are loads of novice spots all around there, just go round to dunnet bay which is a nice beach break to learn on. or further west towards strathy and such like which are also a good laugh.
