Description

Norway's best surf is found along the beaches of Jæren. This stretch of coastline invites you to explore the North Sea for wind and waves. The spots range from easy and gentle beginner beaches, to the more demanding and better boulder rock points, which doesnt work as often as the beaches.

The summer season is most welcoming for beginners, while the late autumn and winter has more exciting conditions, rewarding for those who brave the colder temperatures. Modern wetsuits and equipment open the entire winter season for  both wave-, wind- and kitesurfing. Especially suited for beginner level surfing is Solastrand beach, Hellestø beach, Sele point/beach, Borestrand beach, Brusand and Ogna beach.

Windsurfing and kiting is a popular activity at at the Solastrand beach due to its relatively sheltered wave conditions even in strong winds (S-SW). If you need more information, equipment and coaching, please contact: www.surfschool.no at (+47) 911 26 489. For reliable and detailed wind forecast, go to www.yr.no. Talk to the surfshops in Stavanger for local knowledge about the conditions. Please respect local landowners and agriculture when travelling and parking along the Jæren landscape.
