What to Expect from I Wanna Surf?

Surfing is not really the first thing you would associate with this small landlocked country in the middle of Europe. And yet, there’s quite a bit going on in Switzerland. With no sea to surf, the Swiss surfers are forced to take every opportunity they get — be it on standing river waves, behind souped-up motor boards or simply with packed bags and a flight ticket. They seem to trace down every surfable wave in Switzerland, and they’re already regulars in the waves of the world.

There are surfers finding a home in a land without a sea and kids leaving the same country forever behind. How do the juggle their everyday work life with the urge to just grab a bag of boards and head for the shore? What is it that drives them? We join some of the most interesting and intriguing characters of the Swiss surfing scene on their search for the perfect wave and in their dream of, against all odds, doing what they love the most: surfing.
