Edelweiss new main sponsor of Swiss Surfing and title sponsor of the "Edelweiss Surf Tour

Surfers have known it for a long time: Edelweiss takes them and their valuable boards to the most beautiful vacation destinations and surf spots in the world. But not only that, because Edelweiss also offers attractive conditions for the transport of surf equipment, with the first sports luggage up to a maximum of 23 kg traveling free of charge.

As the new main sponsor of Swiss Surfing and title sponsor of the "Edelweiss Surf Tour", Edelweiss is now even more committed to this sport. "Surfing is very close to Edelweiss' heart. As the leading Swiss vacation airline, we bring the surfing community directly to some of the most beautiful surfing hotspots all year round - from lesser-known gems such as Newquay in England to the absolute surfing mecca of Costa Rica. Through the cooperation with Swiss Surfing, we put an even stronger focus on surfing and look forward to a great exchange with the community at the Edelweiss Surf Tour," said Yves Rückert, Head of Brand Management & Marketing Communications at Edelweiss.

Swiss Surfing is launching the first interdisciplinary Swiss amateur surf contest series "Edelweiss Surf Tour" this year, with Edelweiss as the title sponsor. The unique tour format will include the Swiss Championships in the three disciplines of River Surfing, Stationary Waveriding and Wavepool Surfing, and the overall winners will be crowned. The five-stop series will start on April 30 and end on December 4, 2022.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have Edelweiss as a partner for Swiss Surfing. Edelweiss is a perfect fit for the needs of surfers. And we are convinced that with such a strong partner at our side, we can bring surfing in Switzerland to a higher level," says Benedek Sarkany, President of Swiss Surfing.
