ur first video is finally up and ready to watch in all it’s glory!
It was a bit of a rush job to get it done before we leave for Thurso tomorrow, but I’m pretty happy with it. Watch it, tell your friends. If you hate it, tell your enemies! Vote in the poll. Leave a comment. You rule!!
I have a friend who has been to Thurso, in Scotland, a few times and absolutely loves the place. It’s cold, pretty boring when there are no waves and about as far North as you can go on mainland UK, but the way he talks about it and the pictures he’s shown me – it’s somewhere I just have to go.
My wife and I came to London just short of 8 months ago and I haven’t surfed at all since we got here. To say I’ve been getting desperate for waves is definitely a huge understatement! The UK isn’t known as a surf destination by any means, but surfers and bodyboarders who live here have sought out top quality spots and when you really want to find out what waves can be had here you find yourself pretty surprised and amazed at what’s on offer. The swell only really hits in winter, and while that sucks a bit because of the temperatures, the upside is that only those who are dedicated and really love to get in the sea will be in the sea. I just bought a whole bunch of new gear – I gave away all my stuff before we came over – and I can’t wait to get to Thurso and try it all out.
I love to find out about the places I’m going to and find out about the spots there and the type of coastline. To give you a small taste of what we hope to find up in the North sea I thought I’d let you in on a little bit of the prepping that I’ve been doing over the last little while. A while back my friend sent me this shot of a spot he saw near Thurso, which he says is probably unrideable.
