RE: Dundee Surfers

well, checked these spots out in the internet and hey! doesn't look too bad :) I'm just afraid they're VERY crowded whenever swell's good... I can imagine ALL the people from edin/glas come there at once especially on the weekends?
but yes, it's cool, thanks for your help you opened my eyes in some way :o)
where do you live by the way? may I ask

RE: Dundee Surfers

yes u can ask i stay in livingston thats inbetween glasgow and edinburgh. yes these beaches can get crowded but not that crowded and theres nice wee spots out of the way of those crowded places that work really well.i can drive 4 2 hours up or down the east coast and get good waves with no 1 about 4 miles. the norths really crowded. if u where 2 drive from here up north along the eastcoast u would never make it because theres so many places that arent  mentioned along this coastline

... hm this question does not really fit in a surf forum, but... do you have any idea how to find kind of a share flat? I wouldn't expect to find such in a newspaper? At home I would have a look at the university pin board... but, well,... :)

Hi Kathrin,

You should try a website called flatshare.com.. Just google it. It does what it sys on the tin. I curretly live in Birmingham,but from Dundee(Movin back soon) Always up the East coast when I come home, had some lovely uncrowded action at home. I usually go down to South Wales and it's like a zoo when it's crankin. Good luck in your search.
