The Ocean is Our Way of Life, but

When it comes to Surfing, we do not want to replace the sea and its unpredictable environmental challenges, but we want to make surfing more accessible and safe for everyone the whole year.

A great way of learning for beginners, and a place for improvement for intermediates and professionals, due to the great number and quality of waves. A place to grow the popularity of surfing, which is not only a fantastic sport but also a lifestyle.

Its Beach-like pool surrounded by beach bar, restaurant, beach volleyball court, and more, together with a warm and comfortable air and water temperature will definitely give you the tropical experience that Norwegians always seek on holidays. 

Urban Tropical and Surf Experience

Giving a tropical experience is connected to Norwegians’ growing demand for good bathing opportunities and interest in a more tropical experience on holidays and vacations.

The growing popularity of surfing as a recreational and sports activity is driving the growth of the global surfing market. It is has became a lifestyle for many. Surfing is now included in the Olympic Games.
