While the official ukprosurf.com website still lists this event as “Info Coming Soon”, we’ve heard this week in relation to dates for the UK Pro Surf Tour Championships in Thurso. The information reveals UK Pro Surf Tour will take place between Oct 30-Nov 1.
Thurso will see over 100 surfers compete in the 2014 UK Pro Surf Championships, although these people will be made up of professional and junior surfers.
The event will be supported by SSE, an energy company, and Highland Council along with around 2,000 fans watching the competition to offer their support.
Normally, Scottish surfers would visit Cornwall to take part in a UK surfing event of this scale. This can be quite hard for the younger surfer, so Scottish juniors will see this as an opportunity to compete at a higher level.
Now all we need to hope for is the right surfing conditions, and this is something UK inland surfing lakes won’t need to worry about next year.
