Vouchers from surft.kologne

surft.kologne introduces you to surfing and everything that goes with the surfer lifestyle in a casual and incredibly open-minded way. And we really mean everything that goes with it.

Longboard courses, surf yoga, SUP yoga on the water, surf trips and surf sessions on the Rhine. Yes, you heard right - you can surf on the Rhine. With a surfboard, wetsuit and all the trimmings. We'll try to keep it short: You take a motorboat out onto the Rhine, get into the water with your board and hold on to the boat with a kind of line, the boat creates a left or right wave for you (just as you need it ;)) and then the absolute fun can begin. We were also allowed to try out the Rheinsurf and afterwards we all had a HUGE smile on our faces. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced surfer! Everyone really gets their money's worth here and then falls into bed completely exhausted. So what are you waiting for?
