The southern German city of Munich - situated in the heart of the European mainland - may not be sitauted near the open sea, but that didn't stop surfing fans gathering there on Saturday (August 11) to ride the wave. The 2nd European Championship in surfing on a stationary wave is a two-day event taking place at the city's airport, with contestants from around the world taking part. Each contestant took their turn on the artificially produced wave created by a simulation machine known simply as "The Wave." The open air pool was set up between the two terminals of Munich Airport, giving passers-by something to look at.
