ExtraHyperActive: Winter Night River Surfing In Munich

Winter Night River Surfing In Munich

I've already written about Munich , Germany as, allegedly, a birth place of river surfing. The landlocked city boasts some of Europe’s best waves. Located in Munich's Englischer Garten Park, the Eisbach wave is probably the most watched and surfed wave in the world. It’s literally surfed 24/7 all months of the year and is located under a road bridge on Prinzregentenstra├če.

The temperature of the water ranges from a chilly 8C (46F) in October to a frigid 4C (39F) in April and down to 1C (34F) in the depths of winter. Nonetheless, brave German surfers don wetsuits and keep at it throughout most of the year.

Below, check out the video of  Maximilian Schwarzkopf as he goes for a night time winter surf session on the river. Filmed over a couple of freezing cold winter nights...
