Rho, Stumpy and I went on a wee mission to find the sun, and according to the Met Office website, (which has proven to be right every time so far), the only sunshine in Scotland was going to be on the Aberdeenshire coast. So with that, we packed up the X Bus on Saturday and headed north.
Sunday morning we awoke to the moon still shining brightly, in a very clear sky. An hour later the sun was up and we were on the beach at Cruden Bay. As there are some dodgy rips there, we decided to head south to the beach at Belmeadie.
After a wee recce, we got the board pumped up and Rho and I took turns at riding in the freezing North Sea.
I’m definitely a flat water SUPer, but will need to change that for the SUP challenges I have planned for 2015.
