E62 Surfing in Hoddevik

Hoddevika is situated at the very tip of Stad, Western Norway’s very own chalk-white beach paradise. The magical zig-zag road down to the coast of Stad led me to the surfing paradise of Hoddevik. Although it has gradually emerged as a global surfing hotspot, the place had a very special and intimate feel.

Equipment List

Make sure you bring everything you need. We encourage you to use what you have for this trip, and purchase items if you’re missing something important on the list below.

SKIS, BOOTS, POLES
Touring skis, boots and backcountry ski poles.

SKI CRAMPONS
To assist in steep ascents. Consider bringing an ice ax or whippet as well.

HELMET
Safety first! Make sure it fits over your thin, windproof hat and does not move when you shake your head.

BEACON, SHOVEL, PROBE
Bring extra batteries for your beacon and make sure your beacon currently has above 90% battery.

BASE LAYER - 2 SETS
2 sets of wool long-sleeved top and bottom. Warm, Extra Warm or Expedition thickness is recommended.

MID-LAYER
A medium thickness wool or fleece top to go over your base layer.

NSULATED JACKET
A thick, warm, insulated jacket to put on during breaks. We recommend a puffy jacket with down or synthetic.

SHELL / RAIN JACKET
Gore-Tex or similar is mandatory. Extremely important in Norwegian climate. The jacket must be waterproof, have a hood, and make sure you don’t get wet even if it rains all day. We recommend jackets with pit zips for ventilation.

MEDIUM INSULATED JACKET
Use a synthetic or down jacket that fits over your base layer and mid layer, yet underneath your rain shell. Should be comfortable with full range of movement when all layers are on.

EXTRA TOP LAYER
Bring an extra medium thick layer to add underneath your medium insulated jacket in case you get cold easily.

GLOVES & MITTENS
1 thin pair of wool gloves to protect your hands. 1 pair of over mittens for additional warmth with wind proofing. 1 extra pair of thick mittens in case yours get wet. 3 in total.

HATS
2 warm hats. 1 thick, 1 thin. Make sure at least one has a windproof lining.

SUNSCREEN / CHAPSTICK
Make sure the Chapstick has UV rated sunscreen in it. We also suggest cold cream such as Dermatome to help protect your skin

WATER BOTTLES
Insulated water bottle, 2-liter capacity. Do not bring a camelback bladder, this will freeze in cold temperatures.

WOOL UNDERWEAR
