Remembering Alex Sutherland

Its been a few days since the sad passing of our dear friend Alex Sutherland but wanted to wait before we posted the below out of respect for those closest to him.

Our thoughts are with the family, friends and surf community after local surfer Alex Sutherland sadly passed away.Alex was a long term member of the North Shore Surf Club and Scottish Surfing Federation and had been part of the winning NSSC Scottish Inter-Clubs team in Tiree in 2016 and is the only person in history to have scored a perfect 10 point ride in the Scottish National Surfing Championships a feat which he accomplished in 2008.

Alex resided by his favourite wave – which breaks on the reef at Thurso-East where he had dedicated much of his life riding those world famous barreling waves.Alex was a very well liked member of the surf and local community and his loss has been felt by everyone who were fortunate enough to have known him.

This year’s Gathering of the Clans will be dedicated to the life of Alex Sutherland
