Are you ready for surfing fun in the middle of the Saalach? A special outdoor experience awaits you in Salzburg’s Saalach Valley. A sail, a bridge and a surfboard – that’s all you need to surf upstream. Up Stream Surfing is a mixture of wakeboarding and surfing – including turns & tricks. In the Up Stream Surfing taster course you will learn how to conquer the river, control your surfboard and make clean turns in the water. You first practise on a simple rope and can then put your skills to the test on the Up Stream System, which pulls you against the current of the Saalach at over 30 km/h and up to 150 m. The surfing coaches are on hand to advise you on how to master your board and make clean turns in the water. Surf coaches are on hand to give you advice and support and you will soon be a pro on the wild water.
