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. Click here for the event calendar.

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 respective sessions can be easily booked on the website of Wellenwerk.

“Wellenwerk is really one of my favorite waves. The scene there is super nice and the wave itself is super wide and has a lot of pressure. This just gives you more possibilities for aggressive turns or tricks. “
