Chilly, I hear you cry? Yes, Scotland isn’t exactly California – but it’s got surf and snow by the bucket load.
Last season saw some of the most epic snowfall in Scotland for years. Take a look at the photo below to see how much powder covered the Nevis Range earlier this year.
Glenshee, Glencoe and the Cairngorms are notably some of the best places to ride during the winter months. They’ve got some dedicated local crews that keep the pistes in good nick and know every corner inside out.
Winter also sees some of the best surf in the UK hit northern Scotland, in particular the gnarly right-handed reef break of Thurso produces some perfect barrelling waves when the swell is just right.
Even in the summer, you can head over to the Isle of Lewis and try your hand at surfing the crystal clear waters of the Outer Hebrides.
You will need to watch the charts pretty carefully for both snowfall and surf – as it’s not consistent all year round. But when it’s good, it’s very good.
