Limmat SUP & Grill

Limmat SUP n GrillNew on the Limmat in Zurich, every Thursday evening: After Work SUP & Grill.

River-SUP is a unique kind of stand up paddling, and the Limmat River between Escher-Wyss Platz and Hoenggerwehr is the perfect place to get to know it. We use special river boards, especially made for whitewater. In Zurich, the river Limmat flows gently though - perfect to learn this great sport. Many find it even easier than SUP on Lake Zurich, because the river doesn't have any unpredictable waves.

  • When: every Thursday 17:00 - 21:00H (only when the weather is good), May - October
  • Location: At the end of the Hardeggstrasse, 8049 Zurich Höngg
  • RSVP: not necessary, but it's always good to know who's coming
  • Info: [mail address protected from spambots with javascript]

You must have basic swimming skills, but we also provide helmets and PFDs for extra security. Your first time on the water will be under supervision of an expert, and after a short introduction you will be able to paddle alone.

Bring your own:

  • Meat, fish or veggies for on the grill, and maybe some bread
  • Drinks
  • Swimsuits and a large towel (there are no cabins on the site)
  • Good water shoes (the river bed is rocky), such as Vibram Fivefingers or some old sneakers

At the Limmat SUP & Grill, everything is free, but the organizing Club SUPzero can also offer river SUP courses on-demand, and most gear can also be rented.

Fluss-SUP ist eine ganz eigene Art von Stand Up Paddeln, und die Limmat zwischen Escher-Wyss Platz und Hoenggerwehr ist der perfekte Ort, es kennenzulernen. Wir benutzen spezielle Fluss-Boards, mit denen man sogar echtes Wildwasser bezwingen könnte. Die Limmat fliesst hier aber nicht schnell - perfekt, um diese tolle Sportart zu lernen. Viele finden es sogar einfacher als SUP auf dem See, weil es auf dem Fluss weniger unberechenbare Wellen hat.

  • Wann: jeden Donnerstag 17.00H - 21:0H (nur bei schönem Wetter), Mai - Oktober.
  • Ort: Ende der Hardeggstrasse, 8049 Zürich Hoengg.
  • Anmeldung: nicht nötig
  • Info: [mail address protected from spambots with javascript]

Schwimmen muss man schon können, aber wir stellen auch Helme und Schwimmvesten zur Verfügung für extra Sicherheit. Das erste Mal gehst du zusammen mit einem Experten aufs Wasser. Nach einer kurzen Einführung bist du dann in der Lage, alleine zu Paddeln.

Selber mitbringen:

  • Etwas für auf den Grill
  • Trinken
  • Badekleider und ein grosses Badetuch (keine Unkleidekabinen vorhanden)
  • Gute Wasserschuhe ( der Flussboden ist steinig), z.B. Vibram Fivefingers oder alte Turnschuhe, die nass werden dürfen.

Beim Limmat SUP & Grill ist alles gratis, aber der Verein SUPzero organisiert nach Bedarf auch Fluss-SUP Kurse, und das Material kann auch gemietet werden.
