The concept of Creek-Surfing is based on a micro-terraced system. Several plastic bands are placed horizontally on a base plate, thus forming micro-terraces side by side. The water is first pumped up to the top of the creek, and then it fills the micro-terraces from top to bottom, forming micro basins. That shallow water enables people to brake and change direction – just like on those snow-covered downhill courses. Creek-Surfing was accredited with TUV certification in June, 2010. Creek-Surfing® is a perfect solution for those who like active exercise accompanied with the pleasure of freedom. Creek-Surfing® can either be a free standing attraction, or a brand new form of entertainment offered by water parks and theme parks.
