The Saltburn scene
"I still think itís pretty low-key. We get a lot of travelling surfers from Australia, California"
I still think itís pretty low-key. We get a lot of travelling surfers from Australia, California, and when they stay here they say itís a good scene, you know, because there arenít too many surfers, even though, you know, the surfersí population has grown itís still pretty small really, and youíve got to be a little bit more hardcore because the water temperature here is colder than in Wales and Cornwall. So, you know, I would say itís still a friendly place to go surfing. You know, Iíd say itís still, you know, surfing is, itís good for the, you know, any age so the whole family can go surfing as well.
