On the high tide it gets super hollow on huge westerly's or northerlies. A bit of fun and kinda of shore dumpy.
On the average day its a great beginners wave.
there is sumtimes 1 or 2 people out and they are quite freindly but like i say its a begginers wave ur better going to thurso east or brimms ness if u r more experienced

North East Grommits - Last time i surfed shitpipe was March 2004 and it was absolulty goin off, must have been 4-5ft+ and Thurso East was like 10ft so thats why i surfed there, i also liked it because on your take off you drive it down the line like crazy and you can see the wave hug the reef and wrap around i just like it cause it was good for big cutbacks NOTHIN WRONGE WITH SHIT PIPE WORLD CLASS WAVE!!!

Judging by the format - Those last 2 messages were written by the last person. Do you want less people to come up here?
