Party & food

But the party would not be complete without a great evening!
On Saturday evening, a “Garden BBQ Dinner” will be held in the Surfer’s Lounge located west of the pool in the grassy area. An all-you-can-eat buffet menu will be served with all kinds of grilled meats, grilled vegetables, seasonal salads, and other side dishes. A small live acoustic concert will accompany the gourmets during the evening. From 9 pm onwards, the “Longest Surf Party” will start with DJ Bazooka and DJ Ronfa who will take turns to keep the night owls dancing until the end of the night.

On Sunday, after the craziness of the previous day, visitors will be able to settle their stomachs by enjoying the “Sunday Surf Brunch” in this special area. A chill atmosphere will be provided by DJ Vinz and his vinyls.

This place will allow you to immerse yourself in the world of surfing. Initiations in various sports will be offered: skateboarding by the Alaïa Chalet team, skimboarding by Alaïa Wake Surf and Mastercraft or Stand Up Paddle by the SUP Sion club and the Indiana brand. Illustrators, photographers and board shapers, most of them Swiss, will share their passion for this sport and lifestyle.
