FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE SWISS Wavepool CHAMPIONSHIP?

The Swiss Wavepool Championship is the official national competition in wavepool surfing. It is also a get-together of the Swiss Surfing scene and all its members who follow the passion for surfing in and outside of Switzerland.

WHO CAN COMPETE?

Every Swiss passport holder (don´t forget your passport or ID) is allowed to compete. The only other requirement is to be either a member of SSA or another Swiss Surfing club. 

Also, foreigners living in Switzerland are allowed to compete in the “Expression Session” division. There is no Ranking in this division and results are not taking into account for the official SSA ranking.

HOW IS THE FORMAT?

We have 2 divisions that get on for sure: Surf Men and Surf Women. Depending on the number of participants we will also run a Junior division and a Expression division. For further details visit the SSA Competition Rules. 

DO I NEED ANY EQUIPMENT?

Yes, bring your Surfboard and Wetsuit. If you don ́t own one, you can borrow it at Urbansurf Zürich.

ARE THERE ANY PHOTOGRAPHERS TAKING ACTION SHOTS FROM ME?

There will be photographers, but they won’t take pictures of every wave and maneuver. After the event we will publish a selection of photos on www.flickr.com/swisssurfing.
