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!!!
