RE: outer hebs

how can u sell out the whole island? dont understand what you mean?  the surf's there regardless of anyone's profile.  whether someone is an arse or not, it doesnt affect people surfing the breaks.

RE: outer hebs

sold out meaning deliberatly bringing loads media,etc ie mags/comps etc etc to the island, for own profit or ones own ego.change is parf of life,but its sad to see the once unspoilt surfing paridise being slowly changed by the influx of mainstream surfers.it aint what it used to be!!

Ha ha,
paradise?,

Have you been there in a van on your own in early February with onshore winds blowing on you for 4 days? I did this last February, I had to put my new board in its sock, my hands were too numb and it flew out my hands and dinged on some concrete. and that was it I went home!

RE: outer hebs

see,these young surfers are too soft nowadays even with their hitec wetsuits!!if it was onshore why did  u not go to other side of the island?!must be a dork or an american!

RE: outer hebs

Because the break that works on other side of Island wasnt working either.
Directly on the other side, where I was was Stornoway, so you are welcome to go look for a swell there, let us know if you find anything.

If you want cold, come paddleboarding in midwinter here near Inverness, I do this but dont claim to be hardman,
shoot I guess I have a hitec or nike wetsuit.

RE: outer hebs

I didnt dog the surf.

Its great there but just it was a bad trip that time as the elements went bad.

Ive surfed there quite a bit enough to know the conditions,

I would go more but the car ferry is a lot of money.

RE: outer hebs

just think if the ferries were cheaper it would be even busier!!!

RE: outer hebs

aye, i use to be annoyed at how much it costs to get to-and-fro from the Island but now im so thankfull.  it makes the difference and as a result only those who come over to surf come for the right reasons.
