Surfing the canals of Rotterdam

From spring 2019, Rotterdam kicks off with a unique and spectacular attraction: RiF010! At RiF010 you can go rafting, canoeing, surfing, swimming and even scuba diving on an artificial wave at the Steigersgracht canal, just opposite to the Rotterdam Market Hall.

The RiF010 waves, which are 5 feet high at intervals of 7.5 seconds, are created by a special installation. The canal water in the sealed part of the Steigersgracht in Rotterdam is processed into clean swimming water by a hightech treatment plant. The surf waves of RiF010 are ideal for beginners, but also outdoor swimming in the city centre is great fun. F&B facilities on water level enable visitors to have a look at the surfers on the canal in Rotterdam, while drinking a cappuccino.
