Apparently the Eisbach in München is a hot place to ride the waves on a surfboard. As you can see from the photo below, it is not very wide (only a few meters) and there is quite a crowd queued up on hot summer days waiting their turn. There are many, many more spectators milling about, so if you are a beginner, you might want to choose someplace more private to fall in. 🙂
This surfer did quite well, staying on the board for a long time while riding back and forth as the waves took the board:

I like the stark contrast between the foamy white spray, the rich green of the water, and the dark silhouette of the surfer. Look at how the line formed by the torso and head is mirrored in the lines of the waves in the background.
To me this picture shows the dynamic, fluid unity that the surfer needs to achieve with the water in order to stay on the board.
