German Surfers Ride City River Waves

Ad Feedback

No beach? No problem. Surfers in Germany are taking advantage of high water levels in the cities rivers.

River surfing began in Munich about 30 years ago. The practice has become increasingly popular as professional surfers flock to Germany for a go at the waves.

"It's very important for guys who love surfing because the sea is very far away," German surf shop owner Ronaldo Friesen said. "And so they have kind of a... chance to surf during the weeks, or all day."

"You can ride the wave for ages and ages," surfer Yoyo Terhorst added. "And it's still challenging because you can always learn new stuff, and there are always guys coming up with new stuff."

This year, surfers have paralyzing snow storms in Germany to thank for the high water levels throughout the country.
