SURF THE CAPITAL CITY

The Wellenwerk is located in the middle of Berlin in the district of Lichtenberg and could not be better accessible. Whether by bike or by S-Bahn. It doesn’t take long to get to Wellenwerk from the city center.

The location itself is a former warehouse of the Berlin waterworks. Instead of building completely new, the location was rebuilt in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way and expanded with a restaurant, bar and reception.

Sustainability is also a clear focus for the Wave itself. It is powered exclusively by CO2-neutral electricity from hydropower and a large part of the energy used is subsequently recovered to heat the location.

 

In addition to the surf session, you can also expect really good food in the DEUS restaurant or a cool drink in the bar with a view of the wave. Also the numerous events there should not be missed.



FRESH WATER SURFING ON A LAKE

The wave just outside the sunny city in the North of Italy belongs to a wakeboard park and offers a unique surf experience on a lake. The wave itself is located in a separated area of the lake and invites surfers of all levels to shred, offering great conditions all year long.

But Wakeparadise Milano offers more than good surf. Besides the wave you get the perfect location to relax after your surf session. At the surf shop with an Italian bar, you can get everything to refill your energy as well as surf fashion and accessories for your session on the Milan wave. A large terrace overlooking the lake invites you to chill, enjoy, and sunbathe while drinking high quality italian espresso.

You are new to river surfing? No problem. The beginner courses at Wakeparadise are designed to help you make your first steps.

THE WAVE

The Wellenwerk wave works on the basis of the patented Citywave technology, which is used in many popular standing waves. Since this is completely artificially generated, all parameters of the wave can be adjusted continuously. Thus, the wave can be adapted to the needs of all surfing skill levels.

From beginner session with a holding bar attached in front of the wave to a powerful contest wave, everything is possible at the Wellenwerk. Therefore, the wave is equally suitable for beginners, intermediates, as well as pro’s.

In addition, the Wellenwerk team also offers numerous sessions with professional surf coaches on hand. We can highly recommend a coaching session at Wellenwerk. The coaches will support your surf progress with their know-how. You don’t necessarily need your own board to surf in the Wellenwerk. At the reception, where you will also get all the information about your session, you can also rent all the KANOA boards that match the wave from the Wellenwerk team. Just ask nicely. The Wellenwerk team will help you. (:

By the way, a session at the Wellenwerk lasts 60 minutes, which gives you enough time to get used to the wave.



THE WAVE

The Unit Surfpool at Wakeparadise Milano impresses not only with its width but also with its considerable power. The wave can be adjusted, reaching heights of up to 1.60 meters. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or pro surfer, the wave is extremely firm and steep at all levels. The technology of the Unit Surfpool sucks water from the lake below and pushes it through a grid up onto the slide. This makes the wave feel a little bit rougher. However, the high pressure makes the Milan wave extremely rideable and fast

The beginner courses offer helpful coaching so you can start your journey slow and safe. But also intermediate coaching or powerful contest waves are possible at Wakeparadise. Therefore, the wave is equally suitable for beginners, intermediates, as well as pro’s.

We can highly recommend a coaching session. The coaches will support your surf progress with their know-how. And you don’t necessarily need your own board to surf - you can just rent our Kanoa Boards. Just ask nicely. The team will help you. :)

By the way, an open session at Wakeparadise lasts 60 minutes, which gives you enough time to get used to the wave.

“The wave at Wakeparadise Milan has really become one of my favorites. This unit surfpool wave is super wide, has a lot of pressure and is forgiving at the same time. The location is also simply stunning, as you're surfing in the middle of a lake in a park. This wave is worth the trip.“
