Surf Weekend 2017

The Club at Farr Bay

The forecast was dodgy, but the bunkhouse was booked, so off we went. North to Caithness. Eight of us gathered at the compound to load up the surf kayaks, and we left Banff, with a flat sea. At least, no surf here! It was a fine day for driving and we made good time to rendezvous with Norman and Alice at Dunnet Bay. Magic Seaweed had promised 2-3 feet, but it was flat. Westward. Thurso flat, Melvich flat, Strathy flat. Farr Bay was good. Fantastic. 2-3 feet of blue water and white foam. After a quick bite, we hit the beach. Iain gave a safety talk, and Gary was first on the water.
