Show Notes

In today's episode, we visit with former Scottish National Champ and reigning Masters National Champ Mark Boyd @markboydsurf. Join us as we venture into Mark's past, tracing his roots to the rugged and untamed Scottish coastline. Imagine a young surfer, alone in the icy waters, with hardly a fellow surfer in sight. Mark's early days were marked by a lack of fancy gear – no high-end wetsuits or cutting-edge boards – but what he did have was an unbreakable spirit and a thirst for adventure.

Discover how Mark honed his skills by watching a Tim Curren video and any VHS surfing tape he could get his hands on. The artistry of surfing became his passion, and he carved out his own unique style amidst the wild waves of Scotland.

Fast forward to the present, where Mark now resides overlooking the renowned Break Thurso. Scotland's surf scene has transformed into a thriving culture, bustling with surfers catching the waves. Mark's journey from solitude to stardom is a testament to the power of determination and the unwavering love for the sport.

Tune in as we explore Mark Boyd's incredible story, including his featured role in the surf film "The Shortest Day." Get ready for a peek into the evolution of Scottish surf culture.
