Back to the most extreme contest on the ASP Tour. Back to another battle for the famous Highlander sword. Back to Thurso, North Coast of Scotland.
The O’Neill Cold Water Classic Series returns to the icy waters of Scotland to challenge the world’s best surfers in the toughest conditions from April 13th – 19th!
As the snow stops falling, the ice begins to melt, and the air temperature starts to hover just above zero, it can only be time once again for the O’Neill Cold Water Classic Scotland. Returning to the icy waters and the lauded wave of Thurso East on the remote northern tip of Scotland, this is a journey into the wild that is one of the most anticipated stops on the world surfing tour each year.
This second stop on the O’Neill Cold Water Classic Series 2011, following its kick off in New Zealand, definitely involves embracing the elements. But the reward for the voyage into the wild is massive. Not only do surfers from all over the world have the chance to experience some of the best waves on the planet in isolated surrounds, but moreover they have the opportunity to lift the highly treasured Highland Sword, and become a Lord! The two finalists will each receive a plot of land in the Scottish Highlands and with it, the title of Lord!
The O’Neill Cold Water Classic Series Scotland has so far produced Lord Adam Melling, Lord Royden Bryson, LordLuke Munro and Lord Yuri Sodre.
