Tourists flock to unique man-made surfing spot in central Munich
Tourists and locals flock to a unique man-made surfing spot in the Eisbach river, central Munich.
A crowd watches on as surfers take turns riding the 1-metre-high wave created by water rapidly flowing through a bridge.
Authorities wished to remove the man-made wave due to safety concerns created by the strong current, but a group of surfers and locals campaigned against the move and surfing in the Eisbach became officially permitted in 2010.
