Communities

Our network is divided into communites. These individual Academic Surfclub clubs are located at the respective universities in order to better influence local conditions. The local sections are held together by the Academic Surfclub Switzerland, which acts as an umbrella organization. If you scroll down here you will find all the sections that currently exist.

Where can you enroll now? As long as you meet the admission criteria (enrolled student or alumni of a university) it doesn't matter in which ASC you enroll. If you study at university X, but live in city Y where there is also an ASC, you can of course enroll in ASC Y as well.

ASC Luzern

The ASC LU is our newest ASC and offers from now on also students of the universities in Lucerne, as well as all other ASC members who are resident in the Lucerne area, a welcome change beside the study everyday life. The club is equipped with river surf, bungee surf and surfskate equipment.

ASC Basel

Your student surf club since fall 2020, at the beautiful Rhine bend! With us there's always something to discover. Whether it's a paddle training session on the Rhine, a bungee surf trip to Bad Säckingen, a spontaneous riversurf session on the Birs or a surfskate session in one of the many pumptracks/skateparks. Monthly we host Get Togehters, where you can meet like-minded people and exchange ideas over a fun surf pong. 

ASC St. Gallen

The Academic Surfclub St. Gallen was founded in 2018 as the first of all ASC sections. Paddle trainings, surfskate and bungee surf sessions, GetTogethers as well as trips to wavegardens (e.g. Alaia in Sion) and citywaves enrich the everyday university life of students in their own and probably somewhat different way than "conventional H$G clubs".

ASC Bern

Your surf club in the capital of Switzerland! The Academic Surfclub Bern is accredited and active at the University of Bern. We organize mainly bungeesurf sessions and surfskate trainings. With the Unisport Bern we organize paddle trainings. Also we drop in from time to time with our club shaper Julian from Yard Surfboards. In addition, Get Togethers and other social events may not be missing of course. Our members also arrange to meet for riversurfing sessions in Thun.

ASC Zürich

ASC Zurich exists since 2018 and has grown very fast. We score with many paddle and surf skate sessions and have our own bungee ropes with which we also offer regular sessions.

ASC Switzerland

The Academic Surfclub Switzerland is the mother organization of all ASC's. It acts as an umbrella organization and represents the entire network to other organizations. The ASC CH is therefore not a "regular ASC" where you can sign up. Its task is primarily administrative, mediation, issuing binding regulations within the association, monitoring various processes within the network and organizing larger, inter-university events such as the Academic Surfcamp or the Swiss University Surfing Championships.
