Tiree enjoys a mild climate and claims to have the most sunshine hours in the entire British Isles, as well as the highest average wind speed. Exposed to powerful North Atlantic swell and ferocious winter storms, its breathtaking white sand beaches offer a range of conditions for the windsurfing community.

Renowned for their warm welcome and Gaelic heritage, the tight-knit community of ‘Tir An Eorna’ played host to world-class competitors, spectators and media. Find out more about the location and follow the action Tire Wave Classic.
