Our 8.5 meters wide citywave® creates an artificial deepwater 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 steepness of the wave:
- For beginners from 8 years onwards and 30 kg minimum weight, a learning bar can be attached.
- For advanced surfers medium water levels and steepness, to enable quick success.
- For surf professionals, the wave can be turned up to a height of 1.60m to provide the perfect conditions for turns, tricks, and take-offs.
By default, a surf session at Wellenwerk is 60 minutes. Spectators are always welcome and the admission for spectators is free.

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.
