Surfing a river in Munich

I'm reading the book that won the Royal Society Winton Prize for best popular science book this year, The Wave Watcher's Guide, and came across a reference to surfing on a river in Munich.  There's a concrete barrier in the river, so a standing wave forms as the river passes over it, and local surfers have been taking full advantage for quite a few years now.  So cool!

That's pretty cool. I hope that was in the summertime.
