Man Made Wave is SSA Official Training Wave for Swiss Olympic Surfers

The Wave Factory Citywave will be the Official Training Wave of the Swiss Surfing Association

Announced by The Swiss Surfing Association and The Wave Factory via their respective social media accounts this morning, Olympic surf training will officially be taking place on a wave machine! This marks a historic moment in the surf park and man made wave industry realm as this is the first ISA National Governing Body to declare a surf pool as their ‘Official Training Wave’.

Considering that the ISA (International Surfing Association) is recognized as the sport of surfing’s official governing body by The International Olympic Committee this is a big moment in the future of surfing beyond the ocean.
