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 taught 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.

Come and surf in Iceland

Note: The school is weather dependant and 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.  The summer time is a low season for surf in Iceland and the autumn is a favorable time for surf.  Please contact us before you book the tour or have us add you to our waiting list.  We are monitoring both the weather and sea conditions and when we decide to operate our school the first 8 participants on our waiting list will be contacted. Please note that we can not guarantee that you get to surf on the day you book during the summer season.
