Surfing in Munich

It can sound like joke if you know that Munich is located inland far far from any sea or ocean.
But that’s no joke. You can surf in the heart of Munich only 10 minutes walk from Marienplatz.

First time I saw this 10 years ago. At the time I have no idea about surfing at all. After I lived in Australia for couple years I wanted to see this place again.

You don’t to paddle out to the sea, you don’t need to wait for a wave, you don’t need to paddle again to catch that wave. Surfers know what I am talking about. May it is part of all surfing fun, but here you just put your board on the surface and jump on it. That’s it.  It looks so easy here.

    The first time I went to Munich we went to check this out after seeing it on TV. I was impressed by how good a lot of the surfers were.

  3. First time I didn’t know this place at all and it was big surprise for me.

  4. I’d love to give this a try!

  5. Amazing to think you can surf in Munich! next time I’m there I will go looking for them because it looks like it would be fun to watch.

  6. Looks like fun. I’d certainly never heard about this before. Wonder what causes the standing wave or whatever it is.

  7. This looks awesome- I would totally try this!!

  8. So cool! I bet that water is freezing though!!

  9. I heard about this. You can also surf on Minnesota’s Lake Superior–but the waves are only big enough in the winter!

  10. Very cool photos! But it actually looks a little dangerous if they hit the concrete or bridge. Maybe it’s just me who thinks that!

  11. Wow – it DOES look easy, but something tells me that it’s far from it. I’ve never tried surfing but I really enjoy watching it! I know I’d probably fall off the second I tried to stand on the board 😉 -Sara

  12. And you don’t need to look out for sharks! (sorry, it was just shark week in the states ;).
