About Southeast Scotland

The East Coast is the least consistent area and unlike the northern shores only gets the dregs of big N/NE swells. Like the northeast of England the unlikely saviour are the rare SE swells which can bring a range of slumbering beaches and reefs to life. Dominant winds are cross-offshore from the SW. Water temps on the whole E coast plummet in winter, as the warming influence of the Gulf Stream only brushes the far N coast, so good wetsuits, boots and hoods are essential as it's generally only surfable in the winter.
