Slowly, the sport has spread beyond Munich in a somewhat disorganised manner. In most instances, it is a small, independent group discovering river waves in rural Europe or Canada. But other cities are catching on. Innsbruck in Austria is attempting to create an artificial standing wave where the Inn and Sill rivers meet, but construction has not yet been successful. The will is there, but the science still needs some work. In Montreal, however, two natural waves on the St Lawrence River are pulling in the surfers. Local company Kayak Sans Frontieres has even started offering surf lessons. It’s a long way from a few hardy souls trying to hang on to a rope in Munich’s Englischer Garten.
