Born and bred in Fraserburgh, Chris Noble has become synonymous with Scottish surfing. A multiple Scottish Champion, he is best known for being the local standout at his home break Thurso East.
Having moved to the north coast of Scotland after a career working on fishing boats, he soon became a fixture in the lineup. Living in the ‘middle cottage’, a house which is steeped in surfing heritage, he became the man who knew his way round the lineup out at Thurso, and has now had more time in the barrel out there than probably any other human being.
Chris now has a family in the town and works in the offshore oil industry, but you can guarantee that when he is home and East is breaking, he will be getting spat out of barrels all day long.
