Recently, the river surfing Mecca Munich introduced the new trend sport to the general public. Today, the scene is growing and the surfing industry has acknowledged it by providing special river boards. The internet massively contributes towards a growing global hype and pushed the reputation of river surfing spots such as Eisbach (Germany) or Puch Urstein (Austria).
Obviously river surfing is not really comparable to the traditional wave surfing. Yet, the appeal of river surfing is based on a series of advantages. First of all you are a pioneer, you don’t have to wait for the wave, you don’t have to deal with the trashy touristy aspect of the typical Hawaii surf vacation and it is simply extremely enjoyable. So instead of booking an expensive flight to Bali or Hawaii get into your car organise a bunch of motivated buddies and experience a new type of surfing adventure.
