May 10, 2018. Today, Urban Surf in Zürich, Switzerland opens their doors to surfers and their viewing platform for everyone. They’ve added a new covered restaurant and are doing all sorts of events to promote the sport of surfing. The Citywave technology is one of the most user-friendly wave machines on the market and is now available for everyone. There are no more excuses if you’ve wanted to learn to surf the access has never been better.
Wave access for landlocked surfers has never been easier. They recommend that people arrive at the platform via public transport since there is no on-site parking. The train and bus bring you comfortably to the station Zurich Hardbrücke located within a chip shot to Urban Surf. Located in the trendy district of Gerold Urban Surf has accommodations for more than just surfers. Access to the viewing platform is always free and is the best place to eat, drink and hang out while you watch your friends lay turns.
From the beginner surfer to the most experienced; from the child to the senior, the Urban Surf platform provides enjoyment for everyone. The Citywave surf pool is a deepwater, standing wave system that allows surfers to ride their own surfboards with a normal hard-fin system. An experienced surfer is presented with ample opportunity to do carving turns, hacks, rail to rail maneuvers, or to get creative just as if he was surfing in the ocean. Conversely, the easy access to the pool allows for novice surfers, children, or anyone really to start surfing under the guidance of a professional Urban Surf coach.
As a new outreach program kids sessions will be introduced for the first time this summer of 2018. Young surfers will be invited to surf the wave under examination of a scout from the Swiss Surfing Association. If the scout takes a particular interest in an up-and-coming surfer they’ll then be invited to continue their sessions under the youth development program of the SSA. The Swiss Surfing Association is already preparing for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. With a bit of dedication to developing their surfing skills, a young surfer could find themselves surfing for the national surf team of Switzerland. To get more info on these sessions you can visit Urban Surf’s website here.
A message from Urban Surf:
