Do you know there’s a city where you can surf on a river?
Munich, Germany, is a long way from the ocean and it can get rather cold in winter, but that doesn’t stop some hearty surfers from catching a wave.
The Eisbachwelle is a year-round river surfing spot at the edge of the city’s English Garden. Water shoots out from under a street and creates a perpetual wave as the stream runs into the park.
It’s not the sea and sand you expect from beach movies. The water ranges from cold to frigid, so surfers are usually covered in full wetsuits and may have to walk through snow to get to the river.
