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 practice your new skill. We will be surfing by Þorlákshöfn which is about 50 km from Reykjavik. This black sand beach is a top notch surfing spot for both beginners and advanced surfers.

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

Once you have booked and paid for your spot in the surf school you will be added to our waiting list.  We aim to go out every other weekend, when both weather and sea conditions are in our favor.  First 8 participants on our waiting list will be contacted with approximately one weeks notice.  Ideally we go out on Saturdays and have Sundays as back up. Please make sure you are available on both days when joining the surf school.  Also, in some cases we can not guarantee availability on the day booked.

The school is weather dependent 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 two days prior to the surf school lesson.  If the conditions are not as expected to operate the school you will get the chance to join the school again free of charge.

Please note that the school is non-refundable
