Surf Kayaking Weekend near Thurso 2015

Best weather of the year at Strathy beach

Saturday morning. Eager folk gather at the Mill to get ready for a surf weekend. Two Iains, John, Ross and George set off by car and a trailer loaded with surf kayaks. The plan is to meet Alice and Norman at Melvich bay. Although the surf forecast appeared to be tame, with an average swell in and around Thurso’s bays, enthusiasm and spirit were not affected. Surf conditions were to improve and the weather forecast promising.
