Located on the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, Port of Ness is not a bad beach break that offers up some great sections for manoeuvres when the conditions line up. The waves here are not always easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. Because this beach faces East, it needs a big North swell to wrap around.
What are the best surf conditions for Port of Ness?
Gets good between waist-high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here usually has a wave (5/10) and will generally be uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are from the West. The best swells are from the North and Northwest. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 14 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 9 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
