Hang 20, Good Buddy!

IMG_0393

Who cares if it’s illegal?  Who cares if it’s dangerous?  Who cares if it’s the hottest sight in town?  Nothing is going to keep this pooch off his board, as he hangs out with the renegade cult which is the Eiasbach.  You know, those guys who surf just where downtown meets the English Garden and makes a single perfect surfing wave.  So the buzz on the street is that for the first time in years, this strange sort of Urban surfing has been made legal – just about two weeks ago.  I mean everyone ignored the law anyway, but it’s still an interesting shift by the authorities. Well that explains that everyone and their dog is now coming out to the surf scene.  Can anyone confirm that it is now legal to surf in the English Garden?

Not yet, but it will be legal soon. No, you don't really want to know all the details. ;-)

They are even shooting a film about surfing the Eisbach...
(Article SZ).

In the article above, there is also a confirmation that the official interdiction has been lifted: "Das offizielle Verbot wird nun durch eine Regelung abgelöst, die den Surfern freie Hand lässt".

Since it is my first comment on your blog, I'd like to thank you for the news you bring on a daily basis. I am myself an expatriate living in Munich (from France).

I don't know the politics surrounding the surfing pooch, but he sure is cute.
