The asphalt waves can be seen glittering in the sun from far away. Every so often, a skateboard rider leaps up from the bowl, pausing in the air for a moment, before dropping back down on the other side. The rider’s upper body rises rhythmically from the waves, emerging and disappearing. Children tear around the tarred track on go-karts, while young people practise jumps on kickboards and BMX bikes over the hollows which resemble ski jumps. The Urban Surfwave at the rocksresort at the Laax base station is the latest attraction for freestylers of all types of sports. Read about what makes the facility so fascinating in this interview with Reto Poltera.
Practically anybody can enjoy the Urban Surfwave. However, some training is first required in order to learn how the process works. We therefore offer courses that can be booked in the outdoor box. The special skateboards required for the facility can also be rented there. These are extremely easy to master. Our outdoor box is not just a shop, by the way, but a real centre of fun. It has everything you need to take part in sporting activities in and around rocksresort.
