Surfing in Atlantis, Finnish Bay, Federal city of Saint Petersburg Russia

Experience:
Novices
Wave direction:
Right and Left
Wave Type :
Beach-break
Saint Petersburg is a city situated on the Neva river, at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The federal subject of Saint Petersburg has its name changed three times, from Saint Petersburg to Petrograd, then Leningrad and back to Saint Petersburg.

There are a lot of beaches near St. Petersburg, facing the Finnish Bay that are ready to welcome all those who love surfing. Atlantis is a great choice to perform your favorite sport. With 6°C/42.8°F average air temperature, only those who stand the cold have a chance!

In order to get there, you need a car, but after parking, the access is instant. Laskoviy as Atlantis is else known is easy to find and has a sloppy beginners wave. The waves in this place don’t break regularly and it is advised to first check the weather websites and webcams, so you don’t drive there for no reason.

The beach-break wave has good rights and lefts, disturbing the sandy bottom. Hollow and fun waves reach a length of only 50 m/164 ft. The swell starts working at 1 – 1.5 m/3 – 5 ft and holds up to 1+ m/3+ ft. When the conditions are right, the wind blows from the west and the swell comes from the northwest, west and southwest. All tides are working for this spot.

Although, Atlantis is a popular beginners spot, the beach is usually empty during all week, leaving waves just for you! Bear in mind that most of the spots near St. Petersburg have only windy swell waves.
