    Wow that’s amazing, wasn’t aware we got surf waves that big in Scotland. When is the best time of year to get conditions like this? Just so I know when to visit Thurso when it’s like this again!

  • The “Thurso Beast” is a worldclass wave, and one of the best in the UK. The surf season starts around October to April or so, if you are lucky you get a 18ft swell…
    International surf competitions are held here too :-)

    Great Thurso shot MaCross, beautiful colour and face detail.Great spray. Did a “google” on The Beast and didnt find much but did find that the Cold Water Classic went there after they left here.

  • Cheers Garth, the wave is called Thurso East aka Thurso Beast :-)
    The CWC was fantastic to watch!! You can find some of the pics here
    and here

    Beautiful! When is it surf time in Scotland? Is the water ever warm? I live close to the Atlantic Ocean at a beach they call the edge of America. We don’t get to see waves like that though, unless there’s a hurricane, my kids would love it. :) SZ

  • During summer its mostly flat as a pancake here, surf time is during winter. The only drawback is that the water is rather chilly, you will need a big suit :-)
