From July 30 to August 24, 2014 a giant standing wave machine – billed as the world’s largest – returns to Munich Airport offering free rides on real surfboards on an endless wave.

During the installation, the airport offers surfing camp for kids each morning and free rides for anyone 8 years of age and older each afternoon. And on August 9 and 10, the European Championships in Stationary Wave Riding will take place at the airport, with spectators admitted for free.

Free surfing takes place each day from 3 p.m to 8:15 p.m. and equipment (surfboards, wetsuits, etc.) can be borrowed. Registration for one of the 45 minute surfing slots can be made two days in advance and, for true beginners, rods are placed across the water each twice each day to make it easier to hang ten.
