What's better than snowboarding? Surfing. Surfing like on the beach in California. Because summer is really showing what it's made of - who wouldn't be drawn to the water, of which Frankfurt has plenty to offer. Stand Up Paddling on the Main has been around for a while, but the real water fun has been lacking: Surfing like on the American West Coast or on Hawaii.
Cool beats, roaring water, endless fun and relaxing with a fantastic view - where is that possible in Frankfurt until Saturday inclusive? On Germany's highest wave on the fourth floor of the shopping center "My Zeil" in the middle of the city. The boards are about the same size as for snowboarding, swimwear is recommended, the wetsuit is already waiting. If you're not surfing, you can relax with a fresh white wine from the American West Coast - you can't get more California than that. I immediately got wanderlust, because exactly such surfing facilities can be found in the numerous beach bars along the beach promenade of San Diego!
Summer fun with the best view
And so the roof of the shopping center has turned into the perfect wave: How it works? With the help of four pumps, it bubbles that it is a real joy. Anyone who dares can surf. But don't worry, there is also a coach for the first steps. Because before the big wave, the first step is to get on the "balance board" in the dry. It's no different at Malibu beach, where I've watched countless surf beginners paddling in the sand and hopping on the boards. Always looked like a blast! About my own attempt with the bodyboard we spread here the eternal mantle of silence. Surfing above the roofs of Frankfurt with the whole family? Sounds like a great plan for the weekend: first surfing and then off to a beach bar on the Main. :-)
Who doesn't only want to go to the Museumsuferfest, but is looking for a beach atmosphere, just try surfing, Stand Up Paddling (SUP) or rent a boat, for a comfortable family trip on the Main. In general, there is no lack of beautiful outdoor pools and lakes, you can find a helpful overview here on Frankfurt-Tipp. My hidden favorite lake you can discover here.
