The wave is rolling again!

You will be able to surf again at boot Düsseldorf from 20 January 2018. That is because our nine-metre wide standing wave will be returning to the fair next year. But this time it will be making its appearance at our entirely new centre for board-sports in Hall 8a.

Informing yourself and chilling out in the new Beach World

The southern part of Hall 8a is going to be home to the major manufacturers in the industry and consequently new products from the fields of windsurfing, stand-up paddling, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, surfing.

Flashback 2017

THE WAVE attracted 100,000 visitors to boot Düsseldorf in January 2017. More than 1,500 surfers tried it out for themselves. It thrilled them just as much as it did the professional surfers during the contests. And so much fun just naturally cries out for a repeat.

Highlight: The Contest with the Stars of International Surfing

International top stars from the field will also be visiting us again at THE WAVE in 2018.
