UNIT Surf Pool officially announced today that Havelwelle will feature an embedded 14 meter wide UNIT Surf Pool, the largest indoor rapid wave in the World to date at 46 feet of surfable face. The development team is focused on building out this facility with sustainable design, eco-friendly construction, and creating a year around surf haven unaffected by seasonality.

The space will offer a large bar and restaurant, a beautiful green oasis overlooking the wave, a relaxing outdoor wine patio, and 12 overnight Slube Home rentals to ensure you can always catch an early dawn patrol session or surf until your legs give out!

“We are happy to have an awesome partner with UNIT on our side. This wave technology offers a glassy, fun ride for everyone. We have tested waves all over Europe and the UNIT wave technology has been our absolute favorite! We are looking forward to building this amazing 14 meter indoor wave pool and showcasing all of our creativity in this heartfelt project for the city of Potsdam and all of Brandenburg!” states CEO of Havelwelle, Ginette Rhauda.

In a perfect urban location, Havelwelle is situated adjacent to the main train station of Potsdam Rehbrücke which will allow for easy low-emission transportation from all around the city. It also neighbors a newly developed innovation campus that specializes in healthy living, handcraftsmanship, medical, and leisure facilities.

In close communication with the Rapid Surf League and the German Surfing Federation, Havelwelle will host local and national surfing events. Alongside showcasing some of the best pro-competitive surfers on their wave, they will also offer private rentals for businesses, schools, and groups to come out and surf for their next event.
