Description

SanvΓ­k is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in Iceland. It is an open spot to the sea with good surf especially in the months of August to November.

The spot offers left and right-hander waves, working better at low tide. The water is very cold, so get ready with a good wetsuit (+4.3mm), scuba, boots and gloves.

There are usually not many people but be careful with rocks and strong currents.
