SOFT OPENING 2019

We will open our doors on the 22nd of November within a soft opening of the wave. In addition to the wave, our calendar will be opened from November 15th. The calendar will be opened in “waves”. All “Early-Bird-Ticket” holders, who have bought their vouchers back in december 2018 will be able to access the calendar first. After that we will open the calendar step by step for more pre-sale ticket owners.

As soon as all “Not-So-Early-Bird-Ticket” holders have access to the calendar, we will unlock it for all customers.

If you want to be among the first surfers, you should have a presale ticket. In the case of cancellations, however, we may spontaneously have 1-2 free spots for walk-ins within the surf slots. Passing by is worthwhile! Our surf vouchers can be purchased at pre-sale prices until our soft opening.

You can sign up for our newsletter on our homepage, to receive more information about our opening date, the calendar process, etc.

 

HOW CAN I BOOK A SESSION?

Surf sessions, courses or vouchers can be purchased through our bookingsystem.
To ensure a successful booking process, all details of the guests (name, age) must be entered during the first step of the booking.

These details may be changed after the booking process, but may not be empty. This is used to allocate vouchers when redeemed.
The number of guests can be changed above the product description.

The buyer can enter his details during the next step. Upon completion of the booking, the buyer (not the guest) will receive the booking confirmation.
Once the booking process is completed, you can select a surf slot within the customer portal under “Date Selection” . This surf slot can be changed up to 48 hours before the start of the session.

INDOOR SURFWAVE

Our 9 meter wide citywave® creates an artificial deep water wave, up to 1.60m high, only with water pressure and without special structures inside the pool. The wave is caused by running water meeting stagnant water. It has the perfect depth of water to surf with normal surfboards and fins, just like in the ocean. The water depth is also safe for non-swimmers. The pools have a water temperature of 26 ° Celsius and can be surfed with boardshorts, a lycra shirt or a wetsuit if needed.

 

WAVE HEIGHT FOR BEGINNERS, ADVANCED AND PROFESSIONALS

The wave height and flow rate can be adjusted individually and are therefore suitable for all skill levels. Depending on how much experience you have, the degree of difficulty of the wave can be adjusted.

The wave can be adjusted by controlling the water volume and the waves steepness:

EQUIPMENT

NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED

In order to surf our Citywave®, no previous knowledge is required. Under the guidance of our surf instructors, the beginners are divided into “regular” (right foot at the back) or “goofy” (left foot at the back) surfers within the first dry exercises. The entrance to the wave takes place from both sides of the pool. Using the unique helping-bar during beginner courses, kids and adults will quickly get a feel for the surfboard and the wave. In addition, it is possible to practice some first turns.
