- ABOUT THE SPOT
Surfing in Pease Bay, Scottish Borders, Eastern Scotland United Kingdom
Pease Bay lies at the South east coast of Scotland. The beach is exposed to the open sea, so there is constantly wind and that’s why it is suitable for surfing. Having the advantage of suitable weather conditions, you may find your spot easily because of the expansion of the beach.
The beach is quite versatile, as it expands from the left with sand to the right with reefs. So it is advisable for beginners to stay away from the right side. Speaking of weather conditions, it has to be mentioned that swell and wind work better when the wind direction is southwesterly. Don’t be deluded by the small size of the waves while being on the beach. Actually they are bigger than they seem to be. The swell starts working at less than a meter and it can reach up to 3 m/9 ft.
The wind direction breaks from both sides, left and right, so be aware as the right breaker ends to the rocks. The average sea temperature is 4°C/39.20°F and it can drop down to -12°C/10.40°F, so be aware to wear your surfing suit. Only matter of caution is to be careful with the rocks, especially when the sea is at low tide. Apart from that, one of the main advantages of the beach is that there is a caravan camping just next to the beach that can accommodate you and your family.
