For those in the city that want to take an active approach to the weekend, how about a spot of surfing?
The sea is well over 200 miles away and yet on our first afternoon in Munich we passed surfers on the street, boards carried underneath arms as if we were in Hawaii.
A short walk to the base of the Englischer Garten (English Garden) provided the answer.
How cool is that? Surfing in the City and hundreds of miles away from the nearest coastline.
I thought it was brilliant and this lot obviously enjoyed their time in the surf.
The real challenge of this from a photography aspect was the speed of the action combined with extensive shadow caused by the overhanging trees – not easy at all. Still, I tried.
So not a sight to be scene everyday, surfers in a city hundreds of miles from the nearest coast. Let me leave you with the cover image and if you find yourself in Munich, go check it out. Surreal.
