Hafnir in Reykjanes Peninsula is a fairly exposed reef break that has quite consistent 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 direction is from the southwest. There is no reef break. The location means that it never gets crowded. Take care of rips, rocks.
