Sele Surf Guide

Sele in South and West Norway is an exposed point break. 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 best swell direction is from the west. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days.
