Surf wave on the river Otra

A mechanically controlled surf wave is being built on the river Otra. This is an exciting new activity for Evje, giving beginners and advanced surfers a year-round opportunity to surf a wave. This is a collaboration between the activity company TrollAktiv and the sports club Otra IL, and the opening is expected to be in June 2020.

TrollAktiv will take care of the operation and management of the river wave surfing. For a long time this company has used the Syrtveit waterfalls for rafting, paddling, SUP and other water activities.

TrollAktiv, with its reception and other service premises, is located close to the waterfalls.
It also offers accommodation, climbing park, bike park and other activities.


The surf wave is accessible 24/7. It is free of charge, and you may use a surfboard or a body board. The wave is also perfect for river kayak practice. Bring your own gear or rent from TrollAktiv (online reservation).

TrollAktiv has well-educated, certified instructors for all the activities, and it is recommended to book river wave instruction and safety course.
