You probably don’t think of surfing when it comes to the land-locked country of Switzerland, and rightfully so.
The country is better known for high-alpine skiing, delicious food, and retaining its neutrality during any major war.
Despite not having access to any ocean or sea, Switzerland’s various lakes and rivers support an ever-growing surfing community. Check out the first episode of LANDLOCKED- SWISS SURFING that highlights the incredible river waves of the Ruess River in Bremgarten.
That river wave looks gnarly, bro.
Landlocked – Swiss Surfing: “In this first episode, Michel Bourez and Kai Lenny set the stage for the series and we’re introduced to Esteban, Valentin, and Dom (the stars of the show). The boys build their first surfboard and get a taste of one of Switzerland’s best rapid waves on the Reuss River in Bremgarten.
Landlocked is a web series about the trials and tribulations of being a surfer in Switzerland. The show stars two budding surfer-shapers, Valentin Milius and Esteban Caballero accompanied by their faithful gonzo photojournalist Dom Daher. This unlikely trio brings you along for the ride as they crisscross a unique surf nation in search of their own perfect wave. Along the way, they introduce you to the present-day movers and shakers, forefathers, and history of Swiss surfing with a little help from the voice of surfing Dave Mailman, who narrates their adventures.”
