Surfing in Norway? Yeah, we know - that might sound very cold. But, due
to the Gulf Stream that brings heated water up passed the Norwegian
coast, it is possible to surf every day. Even in the winter. Thick, warm
wetsuits made of neopren keeps you warm. Throughout the summer and fall
the water temperatures are more pleasant than you actually would think.
At the beaches in Jæren you may surf those great waves in one second, and the next - doze of with a latte in a café in Stavanger. Jæren is the area that saw the very first dedicated surfer-community in Norway.
At Stadt, in the small community of Hoddevika, since the later part of the 90´s - a small and special environment have kept the waves in focus all year around. The place has three surf lodges, surfing school and a great international vibe of people in natural surroundings that are just spectacular. Hoddevika is most popular among those that are pretty new to surfing, while the bay next door - Ervika - demands much more of the surfer.
Autumn and winter is the time of year considered to be the best among
the most experienced surfers. Pull your wetsuit on - and keep the winter out.
