As soon as there are more surf boards in Munich than Dirndl and Lederhosen, you can be sure the Surffestival is back in town. The founders of the festival set themselves the mission to push the development of surfing in Germany and especially of urban surfing culture.
Around 40 exhibitors will present the newest trends in surfing, while urban artists show their work in one of the first exhibitions of its kind at the festival area. The visitors can participate actively in several workshops surrounding the sport of surfing as well as shaping- and repair-workshops. Entry and participation is free.
There is also something offered on the competitive side of things. The Iriedaily Skate Park at the festival area will host a contest which offers the chance to win a couple of brand new Arnette sunglasses - if you can make it to the podium!
Amongst practical impressions there are also some eye-soothing movies to watch. On Sunday for example, there won’t be just an ordinary cinema but at an open air venue under the trees at the Westpark lake. The European premier of “Manufacturing Stole” and Rip Curl’s “Float” can be watched there.
That’s it, that’s … not everything yet: of course there needs to be a big party: the festival area turns into a fantastic party location on Saturday night and offers the finest DJ lineup with Max Mausser, Alex Schiller and Sir Hannes.
We’ll see you there!
