Surfing in Iceland surf rental

Tour description

Never surfed? Don’t worry we’ll teach you all the moves. Come join us at our surf school where we’ll teach you all about the technique, equipment, environment and safety. You can even have your private surf school if you include at least four friends. Come and enjoy surfing in Iceland.

After we have teached you all the fundamentals you can try out the waves and practise your new skill. We will be surfing by Þorlákshöfn which is about 50 km from Reykjavik. This spot is a top notch surfing spot for both beginners and advanced surfers, both beach breaks and point breaks. But we only teach you at beach break.

Check out this article in Reykjavik Grapevine about our surfing tours.

Note: We do not surf if the waves are too small or too big as it might be dangerous or no fun. We know this within three days prior to the surf school lesson. Please contact us before you book the tour.
