Wellenwerk: A Fresh Swell Breaks in Berlin!
On November 22nd, 2019, the first indoor surf arena in the German capital has been open its doors. The artificial wave, built on the site of `Berliner Wasserbetriebe´, is a mere ten-minute car-ride from Alexanderplatz, is suitable for all surfing styles, from body boards to thrusters, and built with a focus on sustainability.
The latest citywave® technology will offer local surfers constant waves that are independent of swell and weather conditions in their own backyard. It is the biggest indoor wave in the world, breaking at 1.60 metres and the widest in Germany, at 8.5 metres in width. The pool is 18 metres long and the water and air are a constant 25 degrees Celsius.
Sustainability is key to the Wellenwerk concept: The facility operates on 100% green hydro-electricity, with water being shot over an adjustable ramp to generate the constant, stationary wave. An innovative heat recovery system also heats the hall, water and neighbouring buildings, ensuring that as well as providing an inner city surf spot the wave also does its bit to preserve the environment that makes real waves in the wild.
The standing wave is suitable for all sort of wave riding tools, from thrusters to body boards and customers can either bring their own boards or rent one on onsite. There is an optional hand rail that newbies can use to enhance stability and confidence from the get go, which makes the initial experience of riding waves safer and more fun.
