Surf's Up Once Again at Marvelous Munich Airport

Munich Airport remains a bodacious oasis for surfing.
I know, it’s odd to hear but wonderful to enjoy, and it’s back again to quell that need to carve some serious waves on your next layover.
Via a press release, the doldrums of airport spelunking are about to come to an end: “For the fifth anniversary edition of ‘Surf & Style,’ surfing enthusiasts will try out their best moves in the Forum of the Munich Airport Center starting July 31. Surfers of all skill levels are welcome to ride the world's largest standing wave through August 23.”
We previously reported on the airport’s predilection to hanging 10 and generally welcoming your own gnarly peculiarities, so we are tickled at the reminder that the surf is most definitely up in Germany once again.
While about a month long, the event garners myriad smiles from kids of all ages as evidenced by the following videos:
In a rare twist, we are actually geeked to visit and stay for a longer duration than normal at a city’s airport.
For those interested, the waves at the MAC Forum will treat visitors from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time.
Or, if you are more into people watching and lack water-riding coordination, the release informs that there is the European Stationary Wave Riding Championship to look forward to, which takes place Aug. 14-16.
And you can always head to the airport’s website, which features all the details you need to enjoy a day at the airport.
For a few short weeks this summer all other airports will again be rendered extremely boring by comparison.
