You will be able to surf again at the 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.
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.
THE WAVE attracted 100,000 visitors to the 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.
International top stars from the field will also be visiting us again at THE WAVE in 2018. The SuP Wave Masters and the Wave Masters were absolute highlights at the boot Düsseldorf in 2017.Read more
The boot Düsseldorf trade fair is the largest boat and watersports show in the world and has absolutely everything on offer – from fishing hooks to super yachts. Around 1,800 exhibitors from more than 60 countries will again be presenting the latest products, trends and innovations from the world of watersports on an area of 220,000 square metres from 21 to 29 January 2017.
You can book a place online if you want to get on the board at THE WAVE. Here, on THE WAVE site, we are giving away beginner and advanced slots at the end of November, in December and in January. Don’t miss the reserving periods for these! Follow our Facebook page or check the site regularly. You’ve still got some options at boot Düsseldorf if you don’t manage to reserve a place.
Those who have yet to make up their minds could still win a participant place at the trade fair. You need to make sure that you register for this before 3 pm in Hall 12 to be in with a chance. We’ll raffle off places for the last surf slot on that day, and we’ll draw five winners from all the latecomers.
