27.05.2024 STOKE MADE JUST FOR YOU

We are very happy to show you the first waves surfed in our wave pool. The variety of our waves shows what will be possible here!
Since filling the wave pool, we have been testing various wave modes and settings. However, some permits are still pending before we can start regular surfing operations. We are currently working intensively on providing safe access to the area and the wave pool, as well as finalizing the technical requirements for your check-in and various wave modes.

The opening is getting closer and closer and we look forward to informing you of the exact date soon.

10.03.2024 Myrtha Pools visits the construction site of the O2 SURFTOWN MUC

Last week, we had a high-ranking visit to the O2 SURFTOWN MUC construction site: representatives from Myrtha Pools, our pool technology partner, came by to take a look at the progress. Myrtha Pools, a world-leading expert in pool construction with over 60 years of experience, is making a significant contribution to the success of our project with its innovative Myrtha Skin technology.
The Myrtha Skin technology used for the surface of our pool is renowned for its durability and sustainability. It combines advanced stainless steel processing with the highest performance to meet the demanding conditions of water sports.

The visit from Myrtha Pools was an important milestone to ensure the early completion of our project.

We are proud to have Myrtha Pools as a partner and look forward to ushering in a new era of the surfing experience in Munich together.

03.03.2024 A visit to the construction site

At O2 SURFTOWN MUC, it is important to us to create a place where everyone can express their enthusiasm for surfing in as many different ways as possible.
That's why a colorful mix of personalities has accompanied us for over a year in the development of this project.

This group of people supports us in important decision-making processes and we have already worked together a lot: The design of sessions and the pricing model have been implemented in a customer-oriented way, with communication channels being jointly defined and the basic needs of users being better understood. By testing the UX design of the website and presale store early on, as well as benchmarking with the competition, we were able to develop a product portfolio that is strongly oriented towards the needs of our customers.

Last Friday, the time had come: they visited us for the first time on the construction site in Hallbergmoos to take a first look at what we are creating together. The shining eyes and beaming faces confirmed that we are on the right track.

More information will follow in the coming months on how you too can become part of this exciting journey.

20.02.2025 News from the construction site

We're back with some great news from the construction site! The construction work is in full swing and the O2 SURFTOWN MUC is slowly taking shape. Soon our wave pool will be filled with water and we will test the first waves.

In the last few weeks, we have reached a special milestone: our surf center is now shining with its complete roof construction and glazing and the interior work is already in full swing.

The surf center is the heart of the O2 SURFTOWN MUC. Here you will find everything a surfer's heart desires. From a smooth check-in process to our well-equipped surf store. And of course our restaurant with sun terrace, where you can enjoy a selection of delicious and healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes as well as a variety of café specialties.

Our Surfcenter offers space for up to 400 people. In addition, both the roof and the terrace each have space for a further 400 people. It is also possible to rent the Surfcenter for events - whether for smaller events or exclusive events, depending on requirements and the number of participants.

We can hardly wait to welcome you soon and surf the first waves together.

We are delighted to announce that O2 Telefónica will be the namesake partner of Europe's most spectacular surf park.

The concept is innovative and sustainable, connects people of all surfing levels and brings our 'O2 can do' spirit to life.
