Surfs Up in – Munich?

Surfers have been flocking to Germany to surf. The Bavarian capital of Munich has become a popular place to catch a legendary fresh water wave in the Eisbach river.
Located close to a bridge close to the Haus ter Kunst art museum, the standing wave is only about 12 metres wide and 1 metre high, but constantly peeling. The water is extremely shallow and there is quite a strong current, making it a rather tricky spot – and only recommended for experienced riders. It was first surfed in 1972, and has become a bit of a bucket list destinations for surfers from across the globe.
