Located in Moray Firth, Scotland, Fraserburgh is a quality left point that offers up long walls perfect for turns and hacks. The waves here require a bit of skill to surf well and break for up to 200 meters over a boulder and sand-covered bottom. There are beach breaks just to the South as well as some good sandbars near the river mouth.
What are the best surf conditions for Fraserburgh?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a shortboard here most days and a step up when the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced level surfers. The surf here does not break often (3/10) and will be busy with locals when it does (5/10), be respectful. The best winds are from the West. The best swells are from the East, North, Northeast, Northwest, and Southeast. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 wetsuit in the summer when water temperatures rise to 13 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 7 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
