Surf guide Norway/Jaeren

Just outside Stavanger you`ll find Jaeren, one of the best surf spots in Norway. Along Jaeren you´ll find a mile long sandy beach you only thought you would find in tropical places. Jaeren offers many different surf-breaks and works on both the southern, western and north western wave swell.

The temperature of the water varies between 6 degrees in winter to 15-16 degrees in summer. So I recommend 4mm wetsuit in the summer and 6-5mm suit in the winter,   5mm shoes and gloves is also recommended.


I would recommend Jæren Hotel for accomendation, located 13,7 miles from Stavanger Sola Airport. Room rates from 998NOK. They also offer airport pickup.

If you want a cheaper accommodation you can check out Ølberg Camping.

SAS wil fly you from Oslo Airport, Gardermoen to Stavanger Airport, Sola  for a small fee.
