RSM:What is your favorite wave in Munich ? how long and what got you into river surfing ?
Tanja :I do river surfing for ten years, I started it when i came back to Munich from a three months climbing and surfing trip (we traveled the Atlantic coast France, Spain, Portugal)
i started on the small wave at floßlände
three years ago i came to the Eisbach ( the first year in helmet and protecting vest,
I looked like the ( Michelin-guy).
we have also some nice waves in the open river when there is high water ,- but that's dangerous and I am scared of it
if you surf there you really have to be an excellent surfer
(so not me)!!!
RSM: You would shred those big waves up in our opinion Tanja much respect !!! The surf scene in Munich competitive and way fun have you competed in river surf contests ?
Tanja:In the beginning i was at some small fun contests at floßlände,- but i m not a great fan of contests and all that circus
RSM:You all are, shredding it up stoked on the coed river surfing tribes of Germany .
