Zot-Day for surfers: an artificial wave arrives in front of the Bourse in Brussels

As part of the 4th edition of Zot-Day, the Wave Surf Pool has been placed last Saturday at 14:00 in front of the Bourse building in Brussels.

Professional surfers gave demonstrations up until 16:00, and then it was open to the public for try-outs up until 19:00.

 The Wave Surf Pool will remain open the following week until Saturday Sports Night, September 22. The last day the Wave Surf Pool will be open until 21:00.

This surfing experience is accessible to children over 12 years old. Those who are interested must bring a swimsuit, as an appropriate surf-suit will be offered on site. A professional instructor is there to assist new surfers and the try-out costs 5 Euros.

Zot-Day offered various activities in the center of Brussels during car-free Sunday, but also this year at the 2nd edition of the Night of Sports organized by the City of Brussels.

About 150,000 people were expected this past Sunday to watch the various benefits of BMX, trial bike, rollerblading or skateboarding. At the level of the national athletes, the world champion of trial bike Kenny Belay, the double BMX world champion Jimmy van Belle and the mountain-boarder Arno Van den Vyver demonstrated their talents.
