Mark Boyd lives in Thurso in the far north of Scotland. Surfing up there is all about commitment. It’s cold heavy and battered by the deepest lows. But when the elements come together you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Boydie is totally at home in the hollow slabs and classic reefs and points of the frozen north.
“Living in Caithness comes with its pros and cons. World class reef breaks, beautiful coastline, big heavy hollow waves, lots of sheep, whisky and good craic. But like all of Scotland, the winters are dark, long and freezing. The weather can be harsh with gales and snow and the summers are prone to flat spells. Contrary to popular misconception the waves are no longer uncrowded these days unfortunately. But there is something special about surfing world class tubes with your friends and its something I've never experienced anywhere else on my travels and something I will never give up."
