Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
To the west of the mainland lies the fractured archipelago of the Hebrides. The area has so many islands, islets and coastline that even the environmental authorities canÕt really monitor it, so the potential for virgin waves is high. The Outer Hebrides receive the brunt of the AtlanticÕs force and have a helpful 180¼ swell window from the SW to NE. A good range of beaches, points and reefs exist and the small, committed group of local surfers are welcoming to visitors that play by the rules. Strong currents are the norm and local knowledge can prevent the unwary getting into trouble. The Hebs are a year-round destination but it can get real big and nasty in the winter.
