Reykjavik Surf Camp
Seven-day surfing adventure in Iceland based Reykjavík.Do empty lineups, world-class waves and dramatic surroundings sound tempting? Discover why the surf media is calling Iceland the new Morocco (the place where everyone’s going because no one’s going there). And before you ask, no it’s not that cold! If you surf during the right season you’ll experience water temperatures similar to those in Ireland and Scotland.The local surfers from Reykjavik (all 20 of them) have been exploring the surrounding coastline for the last 15 years. During that time they, along with the odd visiting pro surfer, have pioneered everything from black sand beach breaks, peeling pebble point breaks to heaving reef breaks. Most of the best surf spots are located within an hours drive from the capital of Iceland, meaning that you can escape to deserted beaches but still chill out in one of the most lively capitals in Europe for some after-surf fun. During the early autumn Iceland is bombarded with swells from every direction, providing for a very high surf reliability and good wind/swell combos. This means that on most days we can find good surf to challenge even the most experienced surfers. Weather you are looking for gentle rolling point breaks for cruising or some gnarly tubes in the head high range, chances are we can find it for you.
Reykjavik Surf Camp offers the adventurous surfer a chance to discover the uncrowded waves around the Reykjanes peninsula, the city’s not so uncrowded nightlife along with some of Iceland’s must see sights.
