Default Surfing - Eisbach

A standing wave in the Eisbach is a popular spot for surfing in Munich - since 1972,

A few recent impressions.

Best regards,
I do not call myself an artist, I just try to capture what I see.
If you need many words to describe what your picture means, it doesn't speak enough for itself.
my photos on flickr - here is the portion posted in OPF.

Great pictures. I didn't know one could surf on a standing wave. Except for folk waiting nearby, I would have thought this is close to what we see every day on the Pacific Coast just 30 minutes from here!

There is so much in Munich that I have never seen. This would be unforgettable! What's amazing to me is that all this occurs in only 40cm of water. Must be painful if one falls!
