It is possible to surf in Perpignan !
A “Wave surf café” has opened its doors last Friday February 16th at Carré d’Or – Château-Roussillon.
“The technique involves placing an inclined liner of 10 meters long and 8 meters wide creating a surf spot on 80 m² on which water is propelled at 80 km/h. At that speed, it is possible to mobilize masses of water up to 10 centimeters high at a speed of 30 km/h. Balancing your own body weight on the inclination on an appropriate board of the size of a snow board, it becomes possible to body board or to surf,” explains the concept’s creator Philippe Roger.
This very amusing activity is open to everyone as from the age of 8, whilst their entourage can enjoy a refreshing drink.
From a sustainable point of view, the water is entirely recycled.
