Hi...I'm a Gaswegian lass living in the states now since 91..I'm one of the lucky ones surfing Malibu California, am flying in on the 24rth and am trying to get as much info as poss on the surf community there in GLasgow, I'm not taking my board as I got told the airlines will wreck it anyway.

Hiya Pease bay isnt easy to get to by public transport , the best beach to get to from glasgow is dunbar (belhaven bay) as there is a  direct train but its still a 20 - 30 min hike to the beach. north berwick is better i hear as there is a surf hire shop close to the beach  but havent been there yet

also at this time of year you need a 6 mm wetsuit boots gloves and head gear!

getting a car soon ( i hope!)

Hey all, just stumbled upon the site. I am looking to get into the water a lot more this year. I have been dabbling in and out since holidaying in Newquay in 85!! Still very much a beginner looking to improve. Currently have no board but do have a car.

I went to O'neill Open in Thurso last year, did anyone get up?

Later :D

Used to get the train to Dunbar regularly too when I was in Uni. You have to watch it with some conductors as they can be a bit ars*y bout boards in the cargo hold. The train is about 20mins but only runs every two hours. So if you miss one then you have to endure piss taking from Neds in Waverley until the next one comes!? Well worth it, though just to get out there. Beats sitting inside watching youtube.
