Surfing in Munich

German surfers don´t have it easy. In a country that is almost completely landlocked for the most part of its territory, wave riders tend to get creative.

In Munich, the capital city of the southern state of Bavaria, the Isar river seems to be a reliable alternative to the ocean. River surfing has become so popular in the city that serious competitions have already taken place.

 In case you ever want to ride these waves, be aware that the best spot is under the Reichenbach Bridge.

With good beer, breathtaking landscapes and a decent amount of waves to surf, Bavarians seem to have it all don´t they?
