Amazing photo - well taken! Speaking as an ex-pat Scot, I'd love a copy of this one too, it's an absolute beauty. Can I figure out how to use the MSW email? Of course not.

Really appreciate you boys putting so many sick shots of Scotland up here, hopefully draw the hordes over there instead of Ireland. By all reports, there are tons of visiting surfers on the Irish west coast right now... as long as everyone shares and smiles... not that I'm the boss or anything, but...

How chuffed would ye be to be on one of those. I'd chuff myself if it was about to chuff on my chuff though,no way my lungs would be chuff enough to last that chuff down. Brilliant perspective shot

nice wave and easy channel to paddle over into the zone. Makes for easy drops and fun. but that temp, isnt it still close to summer and people have full suits and on land jumpers. How do you guys do it up there? I salute you surf nazis (surf nazis as in crazy die hard surfers not as in cooking people in ovens) for the braving those ball crushing temps

That's the thing soutie. The take off is easy, then it just walls up.

not so sure of the easy drops, Mantis. I have a feeling its a tricky takeoff, and a fast ride.
