Scotland Surf and Ski Same Day
Date Posted: 13.07hrs on Thu 17 May 12
Prompted by a post in ramping. In fairly recent years I have golfed and skiied in the same day, Kinloss Golf course and Cairngorm - with the weather forecast looking at a warm spell I think Surf and Ski could be possible in the same day - not talking green room waves here.

I have surf canoed Lossie East Beach and family surf at Sanded so distance wise its doable. Nairn beach is closer to CairnGorm but I haev only swan there a long time ago

As age takes its toll I started to woryy about getting harpooned by mistake so gave my wetsuit to brother so its not something I would be up for.

Any thoughts?

Can claim a ski + surf on the same weekend ?

1st Nov 2008 - Cairngorm powder on the east lady


Followed by some fun mellow 4ft peeling waves in Aberdeen the next day...


Many years ago there use to be the annual 'Freeze + Breeze' competion - which mixed up snowboarding with windsurfing on loch morlich.

never one that same day, but had a lunan bay/cairngorm weekend combo back in 2008, and several mtb/board weekends (most recently at easter), but thats not much of a challenge to pull off!

does a kicker session on cairngorm followed by a (semi-warm) dook in loch morlich count?

I've managed windsurf in Loch Morlich and slide down a snowpatch in July before, but never made it down the coast.

Looked up Sandend and it looks a fun break - will check it out. Aberdeen looks like a chilled break in that pic too. Another for the list! Shame the swell switches off as the water warms up.

Climb & ski should be possible.

A few years ago we did Savage Slit and on the walk out (we took the long route over the northern corries) we watched Doug Bryce & co skiing Aladins.
