Surfing (summer sport subject)

In the last half of the spring semester, you can choose Surfing as one of your two sport subjects. In the first few weeks of the fall semester and in the weekends for as long as the weather allows it, you can also take surfing lessons.

We have all of the equipment you need as well as talented instructors. No matter whether you are an experienced surfer or a beginner you will find challenges on the water. We have equipment for both wind surf and kite surf.


With the Bay in our Backyard

Idrætshøjskolen Aarhus is located in Risskov in the northern part of Aarhus, and just a bike ride away from the forrest and the sea. The Bay of Aarhus offers nice conditions for both kite surf, wind surf and stand up paddle surfing.

Trips with surfing

During both the spring and the fall semester you have the opportunity to join the school on a trip to the sports resort Club La Santa on Lanzarote.

Lanzarote is an island off the coast of West Africa. Its surrounding waters are great for both kite surfing, wind surfing and wave surfing. Club La Santa has all of the equipment we need and experienced instructors to teach both experienced surfers and beginners.

In addition to surfing, Club La Santa offers a wide variety of sports activities as well as amazing facilities and a lovely warm climate.
