Begginer spots in Scotland« on: September 02 2006 11:09:00 »
I'm organising a trip for my school surf club and we've decided scotland would be a good place to go. Then i read about Caithness in a magazine. Unfortunately a lot of our group are begginers and i think Caithness would be too advanced for some of them. Is there anywhere in the Caithness area that is suitable for begginer and intermediate surfers.

Mate, don't be stupid, if you turn up to any break with a bus load of kooks, don't be surprised if you get trouble from the locals. If you do find somewhere make sure they all know the code before gettin in the water. If your at school, I'm sure you'll know how to do homework. I suggest you do some.

okay if "stayaway" is scottish he isn't doing a lot to promote surfing there is he? Theres only eleven in the club that would be allowed to go, so don't have a crap attack bout us turning up and taking over. And as for school "stayaway" i think you should go back and learn some manners. I'd hate to be in a line up with you, you sound like a right wave hogger. And just a reminder without tourists most surf spots would have no economy so stick you.

Stayaway, you sound like a right tool. Mate I hope you find what your looking for, might be worth getting the name of a local surf shop, and asking the owner for beginner breaks in the area your lookin for, and ignore that buffoon. He's prob not even Scottish.

As beginners you'd be best on a open beach with tons of room and lots of peaks rather than a point with one take off spot. You could do a lot worse than Dunnet Bay or Sandside. Dozens of beaches aong the Caithness coast. If north coast is flat go down around Wick to beaches there. Dont go to Brims Ness or Thurso East or any reefs/point breaks.

When I visit my relatives in Edinburgh, I prefer to go to Bellhaven bay, lots of room, nicer atmosphere.
Farr Bay is ok for begginers and tends to close out when its big so you PROBABLY wouldnt get caught in a rip.
