Built for almost two years and finished in 2012 by Austrian and Slovakian engineers, this artificial wave in the Areál Divoká Voda sets new standards in river surfing.

How to Get There
- Surfable almost daily, from around 10am to 8pm, can be turned on and off by water park staff
- Check their Facebook Fan Page or the White Water Calendar on the website for times.
- A very well constructed wave, glassy to the point of being almost invisible, adjustable in terms of flow speed and steepness.
- Very good for shortboards under 5’8″. Everything above that will almost guarantee you a pearl.
- Head injuries by hitting wooden construction parts, we recommend use of a helmet
- Water behind the wave is only about 30-50cm deep, riverbed is concrete, but very even and covered in algae, so expect to be washed along for a bit. Minor bumps and bruises may still occur. Wear an impact vest and/or shorts if you’re unsure.
- Use of surf shoes is highly recommended, it will protect your toes from injurys by wipe-out and when climbing back out, as some of the rocks along the banks are pointy.
- This wave is a real fin-eater, bring spares. Most locals saw off their fins to about 2-3″ length, or use small rubber fins.
- At the time of writing, entrance to the wave was 10€/day. Boards and safety gear (vests and helmets) can be rented on-site. Drinks are available at moderate price at the surf-hut, 30m from the wave.
