Year round there is a fantastic little fake wave constructed on the south side of the garden where people can take turns catching a few waves far from the real tide. Even if you are no Johnny Tsunami, stopping by to watch is just as gnarly. Hang ten, dude!
Riding a bike through the English Gardens in Munich wasn't as much fun as it probably is during the summer due to the snow pelting down on us. However, chancing upon this weird phenomenon of surfing in the river made it totally worth it. If you bring your wetsuit, you can even brave the waves in the snow like these people.
