Surfing near Tromsø

« on: July 20 2005 17:07:00 »

Is there anyone who knows of any surfing spots in the area around the city of Tromsø in Northern Norway?

På norsk:
Er det noen som veit om noe surfeplasser i Tromsøområdet?  Jeg veit det finnes surfing i Lofoten, men det er litt langt fra Tromsø.

There is a surfspot 30 min drive from Tromsø. The place is called  Grøtfjorden.

Just surfed at a place called Senje, it's the biggest island in the Tromso area. 4 -5 foot right hand point break, just around the corner from a beach called Ersfjord which also has waves. It's about a 2 hour drive from Tromso city, but it's totally worth it. Much better than Grotfjord..Just check the weather for storms approaching, I camped overnight and woke up to a very nice suprise..
