Skateboard Shops
  • there was one but it shutdown. so ha ha !
  • the one next to the new market which has most stuff skaterwise and tempest down near at the harbour has lots of ace clothes and surfing stuff also has the best cafe in town
  • ! There are now 2 skate/surf by the fishmart by the harbour (which has a cafe too) aand one beside the newmarket
  • None in Thurso
  • None.There was a skateboard arena(sort of),but that disappeared up it's own slippery slope. The kids were just 'boy racers' in waiting anyway.
  • Skateboarding Sucks ass. Please break your legs you freaks.
  • Nothing for boarders I'm afraid. You shouldn't be surprised. Caithness cannot sustain any business not absolutely mainstream - there aren't enough young people anymore. The only ones left are the school agers and the ones who are too scared to leave for the 'Big City' - like Aberdeen.
  • Bad news. There was a skate and surf shop there, but it went bust shortly after the mother of the owner died, god rest her soul. The skateboard ramp went nearly 8 years ago, when we lifted it on the back of a trainer to a barn near Reay. I don't know how it is doing anymore, but it was in the barn of the big house on the hill above Reay. I don't see too much mention of the surfing in Thurso. One person I know who travelled around the world surfing said that Thurso East was still the best break he had ever surfed, even if it is bloody cold! Big fat right hand barrels on a good 4-5 ft, off shore wind day. you have the shit-pipe as well, between Thurso east and the beach, which provides nice left and right hand breaks, and barrels under the right conditions. Unfortunately I think a lot of the surfing scene has died off since drugs started to make their presence felt in Thurso. Why get cold to get a buzz? is the attitude. The hardcore surfers and skaters who built the ramp all left for pastures new and seem to have taken with them the urge to do something unusual which doesn't involve snorting or Rizlas.
