Find the right
Riverboard

COUNTLESS different riverwaves
but what is the right board?

 

No matter if found in nature or artificial static waves, every Riverwave has its very own character. Steep, flat, high or low and with a low or high power or water pressure.
We want to help you to find the right surfboard for different types of static waves.

Artificial River Waves
or Wavepools

Current artificial static waves have rather steep faces with quite high power and pressure. That is why it is possible to surf shorter boards with narrow tailshapes. Also the rocker can be a bit higher and therefor allow a more ocean inspired surf approach aswell as easier turn initiation.

One example for an aritificial wave is the unit parktech wave which can be currently found in Langenfeld or in Wakeparadise Milano. Another Wavepool concept is the Citywave which is stationed in Jochen Schweizer Arena Munich, Wellenwerk Berlin, the Oana Wave in Luzern, Urbansurf in Zurich, Multiplex Citywave Vienna and the Havelwelle in Osnabrück.

The Eisbach and
comparable river waves.

The mother of all stationary waves! The Eisbach is a rather powerful wave with a unique shape. It requires a slightly wider outline and a lower tailrocker then the artificial waves. Especially as it has some weaker days in summer.

Go for The Creek as an all round riverboard, Battery for Advanced riders and Eggplant and Fish’n Chixx for summer days. Foamy flow for all of those who are tired of fixing and want more performance then any other softboard.

HEAVY SURFER

Less powerful river waves

Weaker river waves require different Shapes. The riverboard of your choice should show more Volume, wider tails and a flat rockerline. Depending on the wave it can also be slightly longer. With the right surfboard the lower water pressure can be compensated to provide the necessary flow and speed.

The described wave characteristics can be found on the Bremgarten Wave in Switzerland, the Floßlände or E2 in Munich or the Almkanal in Salzburg.
