Open Now!

So you thought surfing was just for beaches? Well think again – as now you can surf in Zurich, not just in the lake but in the city at Gerolds Areal! Urban Surfing arrived in Zurich last year and has just opened again for this season so why not get onto the Urban Wave website and book yourself a session?

When you arrive for your first surfing session at Urban Surf you will get kitted out in a neoprene suit, and a helmet (if you wish) and of course a surf board.  Naturally you can use your own surfboard (with a leash), if you have one and your own neoprene suit too. You will need to bring along your proof of ID and arrive 20 minutes ahead of your booked session.

Refreshments Available 
At  Urban Surf you will find a full selection of  healthy treats should you be feeling peckish and at the Surfbar  there are drinks available to purchase.

Entrance to the Surfing area is free of charge and accessible to all during opening hours (except when they are hosting private events). Up to a maximum of 400 people are allowed on the platform at the same time. The cost for a 45 minute beginner or advanced session is CHF 57 and a private session costs CHF 499.

Changing Cabins and Toilets
Toilets and changing cabins are available on site and there is a shower too although for ecological reasons, you are requested not to use soaps or shampoos in the shower.
