NOMB Changer Involved

Surf event in Bern 2023
I am thrilled to be your host for another fabulous day of surfing in the heart of Bern. As a surfer, pastor, and a NOMB Changer, my life revolves around community, faith, and, of course, catching waves! Last year, we made a splash in Köniz, and this year, we’re set to bring even more smiles and waves to Bern. Chicken (Co-Founder)

Surfday Activities Include:

  • Balance Boards and Pedalos: From early morning, our space will be transformed with various balancing devices, creating a playful and safe environment for all ages.
  • Surf Coaching: Led by experienced surfcoaches our participants of all skill levels can enjoy surfing in the pool. We cater for everyone, ensuring that fears are managed and confidence is built, stroke by wave.
  • Pop-Up Training on Land: Before hitting the water, join us on the grass for a pop-up session to get you surf-ready!

A note of thanks

A heartfelt thank you to Pastor Philipp Kohli and the community of Bern for embracing this event with open arms. Your support and trust mean the world to us, and together, we're making waves that extend far beyond the pool.
