back to the roots: i.e. plug hole on the eisbach

As mentioned in an earlier post the isar renaturation has destroyed all our playspots on the isar for most waterlevels. Besides that the summer temperature has awakened all the surfers in Munich as well and they are queuing up on the shore of the eisbach wave in huge numbers. After at least two known physical attacks on paddlers it is time to retreat to safer waters.
Which means, plug hole we are back! (not too easy after months of wave paddling in preparation for the worlds... but anyway a lot of fun)
Here some impressions from two of my first sessions there this year. It´s is not too often that you´re in a "real" spotlight as a paddler like at the first session ;-)

Luckily we´re not swimming there:

Well I still prefer waves, but holes got more fun again with all those new moves and especially combos which made me even smile a bit.
