The Glasgow University Surf Club offers new and returning students at the University of Glasgow the opportunity to get involved the most exciting sport around: surfing.
Catering to all skill levels, from those of us who have never caught a wave, to those who want to perfect their cutbacks and bottom turns, Surf Club is a fun and easy going club that fields regular day and weekend trips to the beach breaks of both the East and West coast of Scotland, with the legendary Mac Attack in first semester kick starting a new year at university.
A recreational and competitive club, Glasgow University Surf Club not only gives you the chance to learn how to surf through the help of local skate and surf shop Clan Skates, but also to make new, lifelong friends.
Our epic social calendar includes weekly socials, flat crawls, affiliation with local student night-club Viper, and inter-club events, so there’s always a chance to grab a pint and hang out.
Competing at BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) level, Glasgow University Surf Club travels down every year to Newquay, Cornwall, for the Barefoot Wine Surf Championships, where the club puts forward a team of keen surfers to compete against some of the best student surfers across the UK.
The Glasgow University Surf Club also offers the chance to try kite-surfing, windsurfing and other similar watersports, and we are lucky enough to have a professional kite-surfer amongst our ranks.
With competitions including Windfest and Ozzy Kiss adding to a burgeoning range of events the club takes part in, it’s never been a better time to join the Surf Club.
The club also has a major surf trip at the Easter period, with previous destinations including North Devon and Fuerteventura, providing yet another opportunity for all aspiring surfers to get involved.
The Glasgow University Surf Club is arguably the best and most sociable club at Glasgow University, offering up the most amazing trips, lessons and the chance to get moist!
