Located in Moray Firth, Scotland, Sandend is a fun beach break that offers up some decent waves in the middle of a sheltered bay perfect for performance sections. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a rock and sand bottom. There is a reef on the west side of the bay that can come alive on bigger swells.
What are the best surf conditions for Sandend?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here if smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is not super consistent (4/10) and will be uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are from the South. The best swells are from the East, North, Northeast, and Northwest. 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.
