Hafnarfjordur in Reykjanes Peninsula is an exposed beach reef and point break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the east southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore. The location means that it never gets crowded. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
