i define local as someone who doesnt get off there arse and travel ,someone that surfs in the same spot too long the word local means fuck all on the east coast i hate the word and it doesnt matter cos some dude from somwhere else can come along and if he's better than you it wont matter if he's a local or not he will succeed in getting more waves than any local boy in the water ive seen it happen all round the globe ,all you have to do is enter the water with the right attitude ,be friendly and no your surfing ethics and you wont piss anyone off end off. as for the bra boys there just a bunch off bullys..

Come on guys. Stop moaning about Pease. You can get 30 plus in at Pease and just down the road there may be 3 or 4 out. Check out the other locations - surely you know them!!!

Fair enough - I was being harsh! Pease Bay can be v good on it's day and is the most consistent spot in the area. The surfing standard is steadily improving and there's no reason why people of all abilities, backgrounds, genders nationalities can't surf the spot. There's occasionally a competitive vibe on the right especially on certain tides but most of the beach has a chilled vibe.

Squalid - I feel your being a bit harsh with your comments. Having recently moved from the West Coast and now relegated to East coast surf, I was expecting the conditions you describe. But last Saturday there was a nice clean swell, friendly atmosphere and even I managed to navigate through the relative crowds. The quality of surfing was good and everyone got their fair share of the action. Granted you had to wait until high tide and for the surf schools to leave - it was a zoo earlier with dozens of sponge boards out so I took advice and waited until they tired - its about patience - we all learn somehow - and hey if you want to beat the crowds go touring the coast, the hot pick on Magic Seaweed will draw everyone from miles - to my mind any local will be off surfing somewhere that not posted on the interweb to draw in local tourism!

Squalid, there's a couple of folk who live near Copath - which is in the Borders not East Lothian :).I think as an East lothian resident I can surf where I jolly well like as long as I don't act like an arse 1

Someone should video the surfing at pease and post it- it might waken people up to the fact that; 1. The wave isn't great. 2. You never surf as well as you think you do. 3. The water is usually brown and most of the time you're surfing in river run off. 4. when it gets above waist high most people can't paddle out. 5. It's not worth getting worked up over. 6. There's usually enough uncaught inside waves to go around. 7. The accents of those shouting aren't those of cockburnspath the nearest local vicinity other than cove. 8. When a set wave comes in the people paddling out almost get run over by the 20 guys who never learnt wave etiquette. 9. Very few people say hello 10. If you said hello, shared the waves, observed simple wave etiquette, dropped the I'm alocal attitude, tried to catch the inside waves, paddle around to the peak not directly at it - you'd probably have a good surf and never need to write anything on a forum.

There are no locals at Pease Bay. If you eliminated the Glasgow and edinburgh surfers there would be around a 50 percent reduction in numbers, central belt 25 percent, borders and surrounding area 10 percent leaving 15 percent for east lothian - and if you're from east lothian you should really surf your immediate vicinity. Following that logic there'd only be a couple of really happy kids from cockburnspath splashing around in the shoredump.

Funny comment Haddockboy, Belhaven is just as crowded as Pease, I surf there sometimes because it's 5mins from my house. The people who go there all seem quite pleasant though. Last time I went to Pease or Coldie on a busy day it was full of Intermediate surfers who think holding the trim line is good surfing, no idea about etiquette either. The good( ie. better than the majority) surfers I've met have all been decent guys.

If your getting at the crowd thing i think you need to look at all the surf providers in the area as well as the WQS, Visit Scotland, the whole Uk surf industry and the internet??? To try and blame one lot for the mess over the other at pease seems a bit of a cope out??? Boardwise, Momentum, Coast to Coast, Puro Nector, St Vedas, Clan, Edinburgh Uni and Great Escape.. . all share that responsibility as much as anyone surfing their since the 80's. In a crowd respect is earned not due and etiquette is priority if you dont know what this is you prob do need a lesson, if you dont like the aggro dont add too it by bringing a crowd, if there are 40 people surfing one area do you think it'll be a fun to jump in and join them????? Common sence people? These providers (if they are going to continue encourage more people in the water) have a responsibility collectively to educate people in the right way - teach etiquette , respect , saftey and a good attitude? i think you loose respect for your last comment takin things to a personal level unless the guys done something directly to you - it seems a little provocative ? I aint ever had a prob at belhaven so sam must be teaching something right there plus there is much more space???? Pease bay has always had too much ego for the standard of surfing - it aint kuta beach guys and you aint on the world tour. Just try enjoy what you can with the wave and learn to smile once in a while if you cant do this your kinda missin the point of surfing???

handcock hand job!!! I hear at least theres a bit of etiquette along there something thats been missin at pishbay since the 80's when there was all of 2 people droppin in on each other!!!! 20 years later same old shit??? As fer safety mate i bet you are one seflish cock with all the gear and no idea !!! I wander if you'll drown (at this poor excuse of a wave doubt it its too shit) due to another selfish c***s attitude with his board and want some help from the guy do you serioussly think you'll deserve it - the shit thing about it is he prob would help you too??? You got no idea!!

I'd define 'local' as 'not needing a car to get to the break.' Someone who can walk or cycle to their nearest spot in, say, 10mins max. Anyone care to expand on that? In my experience 'locals,' as defined above, or surfers who live within a few miles of a spot, are usually welcoming and pleased to see fresh faces in the line-up. Unlike some others who effectively 'localise' spots they surf at by clubbing together to crowd out others who they see as unwelcome intruders on their property. The reason...? They're usually just Average Joes, like the majority of us, but have got a wee bit complacent and secretly worried that someone even a little bit better might come along and show 'em up.

Cant deny what you're saying there Mark, but these 2 guys in the shot were the only ones out for these waves and there wasn't anyone else bouncing around in the car-park rushing to get in either. No doubt that changed about 6pm that night eh?

Great Adzo, Pease is one of the most heavily congested spots on the East coast and you make it sound like an empty paradise? Try 2ft slop, 200 people out on an average weekend.
