Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
The Orkney and Shetland Islands lie to the NE of the North Shore and like most of ScotlandÕs myriad islands lie untouched and unsurfed except by a few switched on explorers. There are a lot of cliffs, but where the coast flattens out good reefbreaks and points abound. Skail Bay and Marwick on Orkney and many more spots lie in wait. The swell window is huge, catching swells from the W right round to SE. The islands can get atrocious weather in the winter and itÕs possible to surf nearly right through the night around midsummer, which is a good time to go as in autumn.
