Hafnir Surf Guide

Hafnir in Reykjanes Peninsula is a fairly exposed reef break that has quite reliable 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. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the southwest. No reef break here. The location means that it never gets crowded. Beware of rips, rocks.
