No waves - I am in Rogaland Stavanger already for 3 months and I have been checking the surf occasionally but since I arrive here I couldn`t surf any good waves most of the time windy and small save your money and time if you want to come here to meet some chicks that`s all right but definitely this is not a country for a surf trip or even for a surfer live. Thank god I`am going home!!!!!!!
- Been living in Stavanger for years. Although sometimes it gets good it is generally the worst place I have ever surfed. Strong northerlies and onshores mess things up most of the year. Spots like Reve will only be surfable at most 10 days of the year, some of the locals are okay but others are total arseholes. Save your money.
Law? - prohibited?
Due to norwegian environmentalists, surfing is prohibited from the 31.oct-1 april. Surf here and get caught will get you an 800 dollar fine.
Norway waves - Just returned from Stadlandet,mid North coast of Norway. Surfed awesome waves at Hoddevik until 11pm, water temp around 15-16 degrees.
cheat!!!! - i dont know there is people leave there??hey guys get some nice waves in portugal with some good sun!!!gipsyonthemove.com

nice trip? - You willl need PLENTY of time to find the very few gems. Prepare for cold weather, dangerous slippery roads, very short days etc.
Some more potential offshore if You have a steady boat.
Reef structures are generally too uneven to break well and offshore reefs and islets block of big parts of the coast.
Very beautiful place, nice people. If You like some time surfing in the wilderness it's a nice trip.
i think.... - mate, the coastline is so fragmented that..... no doubt why there aren't many usable spots. check the map- loads of isles and islets and blahblahblah and all rocky and bluff... that you can barely find any cool place. still I believe there should be much more breaks but since the most of it ain't accessible.. deepwater shores, steep coastline.. a lot of rips, cold water, strong undertows.. it all ain't gonna make it a nice place for surfing.
Waste of time - To suf norway honestly is a waste of time and money....a beer costs an arm and a leg and just travelling expenses are crazy...plus the water is so cold "survival kit" is an understatement...
really if youre planning a surf trip dont especially come to Norway....
rather with the SAME money go to Indo,South Africa, rance, Spain, Portugal...ya know?
All that coastline and so few surf spots???? - Why with all that coastline are there so few spots? Youd think if england picks up abit of swell Norway would see that too or are the locals just holding out on us? Theres gotta be alot more potential here from what its showing..?
hmm... - Yeah, just get a full wetsuit in summer and you'll be fine... cmon, water is not thaaaat cold in summer... and winters are really mild ova there despite the fact that its so far to the north.in winter water can be helluva cold tho...I reckon...its all bull bout the weather..yes it's rainy and such but southern Norway is mild all-year-round and so is the northern part along the coast because theres that Gulf Stream thing :D... Some spot we all now there can be quite nice but personally I think- Norway's still an undiscovered miracle in the surf world..at least for the surfers that like explorin new places.. believe me-if you get some time and money, take a trip, travel around the most beautiful country in the world, take your board with you and explore and explore and I reckon- you'll be granted.... I guess, the more to the north, the better but well don't trust my words as it's still untried in life... I seen some sick barrels far north, as ever its really rocky but still you could find a pristine sabulous and fabulous seashore all for yourself with some great wave.. one of them was so far north and access almost impossible but at least for me it seemed fantastic and I cant wait to get back to the place and try it myself...yeah...the urchin and rips seemed a big problem everywhere so watch out.
