Pumping waves by anyone's standards, and to have them for a British surfing contest is a rare treat. Luis Eyre won this year's Thurso comp, his first victory at a UKPSA event.
Luis commented “It has been a fantastic event; some of the best waves I have ever surfed in an event against the best surfers in the UK. I have enjoyed coming to Thurso only for my second time and to win in such good waves is unbelievable. Even though I managed to score a perfect 10 I was not guaranteed to win especially when Micah also scored a 10 point wave. On behalf of all the competitors I would like to thank the Highland Council and SSE for sponsoring this great event and look forward to coming back next year”.
