(Since we want to offer all surfers the maximum fun, all courses are initially 1 hour with a maximum of 4 participants. The basic courses we will expand during the summer to 2 hours and 8 participants).
Being able to swim is the only necessity Precondition What you have to bring with you. This is not only a prerequisite in case of an emergency, but also for participation in the course. Otherwise, no basic knowledge is needed.
If you don't have any surfing experience, it's a good idea to take the basic course first. Even if you are not yet confident in paddling, you will get the right tips in this course. From getting up on the board to finding your balance, everything is included here. That way you get amazing surf practice, and you get to surf some curves.
If you feel that you are skilled enough and paddling on the board is not a problem for you, then the Basic Sessions are just right for you. Experienced surfers will also have fun surfing here.
The Advance Sessions are for those who are already used to surfing in the river or already know how to do a deepwater launch (launch directly from the water).
For a detailed description of the individual courses, visit the Offer page.
At the beginning of the basic course, participants are introduced to the safety concept and then a short swim in the river is done to get a feel for the water so that you can surf safely in Zurich. Afterwards, participants are allowed to try their hand at the static rope to practice standing up and balancing on the board. The first turns can also be surfed this way.
At all other courses, the participants will be instructed in the safety concept and then it's off to our SEPORSURF systems.
For a detailed description of each course, visit the course offerings page.

It is also possible that a winch session booked by you will be exchanged for a bungee session or a SeporFlow session due to too much water flow, or that a bungee session and a SeporFlow session will be exchanged for a winch session due to too little water flow. Our offer takes place in nature and we have to adapt to it. We therefore ask for your understanding.
