It is enlightening to see a surf shop in Lausanne, France: 631 kilometers from the ocean, 392 from the nearest ocean swells, Lausanne’s Get Wet Surf Shop seems to be an unlikely place to have a surf shop.

With all the well-known surf brands on sale like Quiksilver, Rip Curl, Billabong, Napapijri, Da Kine, Hurley, Reef, Altitude 8848, Burton and Driza Bone, we could not understand the attraction of having a successful surf shop so far from the ocean.

But the attraction of the ocean remains strong, especially when only a short walk away is the majestic Lac Léman (Lac de Genève or Genfersee), a beautiful lake of Switzerland and France surrounded by picturesque snow-covered mountains.
