ZÜRICH | Surfing isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Switzerland, but at Urbansurf Zurich you can do exactly that. It opened in 2018, just around the corner from Hardbrücke railway station, and gives people the chance to learn or improve their surfing skills. Professional instructors are present and people of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
The platform is open to the public and access is free of charge. A fee is payable for a surf session. Up to 10 surfers can ride the wave alternately at any one time in 45-minute slots, which can be booked online or directly on location.
If you don’t feel like surfing, Urbansurf also has a great little bar where you can sit in a deck chair and watch the surfers at play while you enjoy a cocktail and a bite to eat.
What’s also great is that Urbansurf is dedicated to leaving zero carbon footprint. It already generates 100% of its energy from green sources, and uses biodegradable containers and cutlery at its cafe.
Urbansurf isn’t open during the winter – generally it’s open from May to October. Check their website for exact opening date and times.
