Surfers will do anything to catch a wave. Even when they're in a city. Despite being 500 miles away from a coast, these hardy surf dudes in Germany are no different. Braving freezing cold water, they flock to Munich's only chance of riding a board in the hopes of catching a freak wave that reaches just three feet. The unique standing wave is on the city's Eisbach River, and has encouraged a lively surf scene -- and a new niche industry along with it. Some of the city's river riders are even starting to make a name for themselves outside of Germany with their urban brand of the water sport.
