I want to know if Mark tried out the wave himself!

I got a chance to try this out while traveling in southern Germany, and let me tell you, it ain't as easy as it looks.

There's also a spot a little further down the river where those not so athletically inclined can simply jump in and let the current scoot them swiftly a couple hundred feet downstream. It gets the adrenaline pumping, but requires much less coordination.

So glad you guys are writing about the Eisbach. Great spot. Some time back we dug up some video of it, complete with very German pop music:

Wow, I had no idea river surfing was a sport. Thanks for sharing, Mark! Turns out there's a World River Surfing Association (see www.surfrivers.net. There's also a guy that runs a company called Serious Fun Riversurfing (www.riversurfing.co.nz), with operations in New Zealand, Uganda, and Zambia.
