No Longer Verboten

Abend Zeitung has been reporting on a new deal to allow legal surfing on the standing wave in the English Garden.

The Bavarian State Government and the Munich City Council have come up with a arrangement which would see ownership of the Eisbach wave. It seems that the City authorities can more easily regulate to allow legal surfing than the State authorities can.

The city plans to issue permits to suitably qualified surfers allowing them to legally surf the wave. In return the surfers have to agree that the city has no liability if they are injured in the process.

We loved watching the surfers from the bridge on Prinzregentenstrasse. Is the the Eisbach?
