Surf Team

Welcome to the Surf Show

Livia, Vincent, Durby, Michelle and Fabiana are surfing as ambassadors for the OANA Surf Team. With the OANA Citywave they have a perfect training facility for further development and upcoming competitions and we are happy to accompany these talents on their journey.

Experience our team

It's always a spectacle when our surf team hits the waves of our Citywave. The training sessions of the team members can be watched directly at OANA and offers a free surf show for the visitors. At all our events our surf team is also there to help and support you in your surf career.

Livia Fürst

Livia got a taste of surfing in the classic way in Hawaii and then got hooked on more. Her career for landlocked surfing started with the opening of OANA. Already at her first Swiss Wavepool Championship (SWC) she could grab a podium place. In the following SWC she even made it to the top of the podium. Ambitious as Livia is, she wants to score again next year and show her best performance.

Fabiana Klein

Since Fabiana surfed for the first time at the age of 6 in Puerto Rico, she knew: this is my sport! In the meantime she is 13 years old and surfs every kind of wave with a lot of passion: Citywaves like here at OANA, river waves like Eisbach and Bremgarten, while wakesurfing behind a boat and moving waves like in the ocean.
