Surfers will do anything to catch a wave - even when they're in a city.
And, despite being 500 miles away from the coast, these hardy surf dudes in Germany are no different. Braving freezing cold water, they flock to Munich's only chance of riding a board in the hope of catching a freak wave that reaches just 3ft.
The unique standing wave is on the city's Eisbach River and has encouraged a lively surf scene – and a new niche industry along with it. Some of the city's river riders are even starting to make a name for themselves outside of Germany with their urban brand of the water sport.
