Scotland 05/02/11 – 06/02/11 – Thursday Version......
Centred on Thurso, but may also mention Edinburgh and Machrihanish in the recommendation area.
Okay well there is no shortage of swell, as suggested earlier in the week, but even more than we first thought. So wrap-around spots that are sheltered from the winds are your only real possibilities, you know where they are!?! –if not break-out the maps and engage your brain. The West Coast will be washing machine stylee, will full-on, onshore winds. The odd spot on the North Coast will be good! ;0) The East Coast is a difficult one, as the question is how much the winds will keep the swell from getting in, our suggestion is to head to spots North of Edinburgh, around Fittie and North to get the best chance of a wave. If it gets in it’ll be shoulder high at least and clean. Hunt where ever you are and score it, well worth some hunting……….!
Swell: 8-10ft Wind: SW force 3-5 plus
Swell: 7-9ft plus Wind: SW force 5-7
