Atmosphere

Head down to the local pub, chat to the locals (half of them don't know there is actually surf in this area).
If you meet a guy called Lawrence, befriend him, although he is not gay, he will invite you round to his place for a bit of greenery....

ATTENTION: Mike Hunt - author of this spot - Dear Mike:
Is there any relation with you to Furke Hunt of York, England? He's a top-notch east coast GB surfer I've been told. If he is kinfolk of yours, could you write me with his email address? Been dying to hear how's York Hunt doing down there!

- For the guy from Cali, yeah it is probably your best bet in the area, the spot (Brimms Ness)includes three breaks (the bowl, the cove and the left) and pick ups any bit of swell left in the ocean...you get nice barrels here even when everywhere else is flat. Coming from Thurso, look for the break from the road, near a farm, then take the road down to the farm. I've surfed this spot before surfing Hossegor in France and was disappointed by south west France in comparison. Good Luck! Take a thick wet suit too!
