STRANDED

Dayyan tells of his highland fling!

Here I am in Scotland, the most northern tip of the UK… We’ve had some classic days here with some of the secret spots around Thurso going off the Richter…
The Oneill Highland Pro has had some sick waves too with ‘Brimsness’ firing for the first couple of days of competition, its a sick little right hand slab that spits barrels from about 1 to 4 feet… A big Northerly front hit for the remainder of the competition which brought a 4-6 foot onshore swell with it… So the remaining heats were held at ‘Thurso East’. Normally resembling a Cold version of Nias, it looked a little more like onshore Bells. It was still a super fun wave with some real hittable sections (well maybe not like Bells then, maybe winki?) Anywho I saw Jay Quinn do one of the Biggest frontside airs I’ve ever seen… I ended up with a 9th place, which i’m a little devastated about after seeing how good the highland sword was for 1st place. Roydon Bryson ended up claiming the sword and his Lordship, which was good to see because he was ripping!
