Surfing in Munich
« on: November 22, 2018, 18:55:27 »
The Englischer Garten (English Garden) in Munich is said to be one of the largest urban parks in the world.

The river which runs through it has been modified to produce a challenging surfing site. Although it cannot compare with the sea, it has its own difficulties, not least the stone banks which would make a collision very unpleasant.

You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Anthony, interesting captures of exciting moments!

Eisbach challenge.

Great stufy of the nude male.

Other part of the Englischer Garrten (near the Chinesischer Turm) would be better spot to study of the (true) nude people?!

I could cope with the shooting part of it, as you did pretty well,
but the surfing ~  :(
Light is free… capturing it is not!

Nice action. 

Hard to belief this is in a city park ;)

Pretty Good timing and good action shoots ... but ... for a Californian, there is something oddly wrong with Surfing in Munich.   8)

Thanks, John and Gary.

California it is not.

They even surf the "wrong" way, facing the oncoming flow of the water.  Essentially it is rather like driving on a rolling road, where the surface moves but the vehicle does not.

I bet anyone hitting the banks will not be pleased  ;D

I assume this was shot in the summer ?

Anthony, thanks for sharing this series

Thanks, Armando, yes, we had a few days in Bavaria, ending up in Munich, where we were able to meet up with NG member Afx and his wife, who kindly invited us to their home.

The banks are very dangerous, and one surfer wore a skiing type helmet.

It still looks like fun.

Hi, Richard, welcomd to NG.

The stone bridge looks familiar.  Is it Prinzregentenstrasse?  Is there the Haus der Kunst to the right of the image?

Thanks, interesting to see how they adapted the river bed to create the waves.
