March and Easter waves

I've been so busy and not had a minute to keep everyone updated on what's been happening so here is what's been going on with me over the last month or so...

There's not been a lot of decent waves over the last month but Easter has been a total treat! Lots of awesome wee north swells, perfect winds and sunshine. Sharing the sunsets with my neighbour Mrs Highland Cow too. She's very cute :)

The Scottish Championships were at the end of March and it was such an awesome weekend up in Thurso hanging out with friends and family. I've been working alongside the Scottish Surfing Federation for a couple of years now and this year's event marked the 40th Anniversary of the Scottish Champs. Best event yet and so much fun. I ended up smashing my lip open in the finals at Thurso East. Teeth still intact luckily! It was easily double overhead for the women's final with short 20 minute heats making the conditions really tough and not allowing us much time to get a score. I ended up taking one of the sets to the head, got totally smoked and couldn't make it back out in time to get one of those sick looking waves. All a great learning experience and congratulations to Shoana Blackadder who took the title :)
Serious props to one of my buddies Megan McKay too. She was tearing it up all weekend and stoked to see her get a couple of sick waves at Brimms.

I'm pretty honoured to have been asked to be one of the contributors for Approaching Lines. The website is an online hub for British surfing featuring some amazing surf photography, surf art and lots of cool surf stories and updates.
