Rafa Cabrera Bello loves to surf when he’s not playing golf and he was determined not to miss Munich’s (Germany) unusual surfing hotspot. He loaded his surfboard into a BMW 5 Series Touring vehicle and drove from the Golfclub München Eichenried to the English Garden, where he was impressed by the legendary Eisbach wave. According to Cabrera Bello: “I do a lot of surfing, but this standing wave is something completely different. It is incredible fun, and I think I got to grips with it in the end. It was certainly a fantastic experience.”
With temperatures soaring and with his practice round for the BMW International Open completed, this was a novel and exciting way for Rafa to cool off. The famous wave is part of the Eisbach (German for “ice brook”), a small man-made river, 2 kilometers long (1.243 miles), in Munich. It flows through the park in Munich known as the English Garden.
