Hafnir in Reykjanes Peninsula is a fairly exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the east 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 angle is from the southwest. There is no reef break. Crowds are never a problem here. Beware of rips, rocks.
