Surf’s Up

Copyright Roger Sharp

No, not the evening viewing at the Smith household, but the World Qualifying Series leg at Thurso East. I’m not sure if this is the most northerly surfing competition in the world, but it’s certainly the most northerly on the British mainland.

The ocean swell comes from the confluence of the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean, as well as uninterrupted from the Arctic Ocean. The town’s currently filled with itinerant surfers with highly-out-of-the-place tans.

One of them almost ran me down with his car. Bastard.
