Located in Southeastern Scotland, Aberdeen Beach is a fun beach break that offers up some zippy barrels when the conditions line up. The waves here require a bit of skill to surf well and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. Watch out for the groynes that hold the sand into place, the are also a couple of underwater hazards to look out for.
