Hafnir in Reykjanes Peninsula is a fairly exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. No reef break here. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Beware of rips, rocks.
