Frequently asked questions

How does it work during a surf session?

After the mandatory safety briefing, you enter the water at the beach side called De Baai. From there, you paddle to the Rif and the take-off zone. A line-up forms there. You wait here until it’s your turn for your wave. We generate a new wave every 7 seconds, so you’ll always have your turn quickly again. After riding out the wave, you paddle back to the take-off zone. At the end of the session, you leave the surf pool again at the beach side of the pool.

Can I bring my own board and wetsuit?

Of course! Your own board naturally provides the best surfing experience. If you don’t have a board, you can rent one from us. During our lessons and sessions, a Vision Softtop surfboard is included. Additionally, we rent out various boards for advanced surfers.

How many waves can I surf per session?

Even if your session or surf class is completely full, you can surf at least 13 to 15 waves per session.

Is the surf pool heated?

No, the water is not heated. But don’t worry: with the right wetsuit, you can surf at RiF010 all year round. We also have gloves, caps and boots for the colder days.

Is the water clean?

Absolutely, a powerful filtration system keeps the water clear.

How long does it take to learn to surf?

The best thing about surfing might be that you never stop learning, not even the pros. If you want to know when you can move to the next level, you can ask your instructor for advice.
