My wife and soulmate told me about 3 City Wave during a pleasant walk around town. We stopped by to take a look and to photograph. What a pleasant surprise.
It’s a swimming pool with a built in wave that you can surf on. When we were there they had open surfing, but they also give lessons and rent surfboards and wetsuits. Best of all, spectating is free.
The web page is: 3CityWave
They will close for the winter on September 30, 2016, and I hope they come back next summer. The Austrian Championships in Riversurfing “Stationary Wave Riding” event starts September 16-17, 2016. It may be crowded, but it will be a chance to see the best compete.
