Thurso, Scotland: no waves but plenty of rocks

Competition was today postponed due to insufficient wave quality and size. After several calls throughout the morning and then a final call this afternoon at Thurso East event officials decided not to start round two of the US$145.000 Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 6-Star men’s O'Neill Cold Water Classic Scotland.
