Hafnir in Reykjanes Peninsula is a fairly exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Ideal winds are from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. There is no reef break. An uncrowded break, even when it is working. Beware of rips, rocks.
