  Munich has to offer much more than football, Weißwürstchen and engine plants because there is a small, almost inconspicuous Isarwelle to Surf freaks from around the world attracts. One need not the open sea to perform tricks on the board. Just a little courage, joy and love for surfing. Bjoern Richie praise has made it a fast-paced documentary that Bavaria’s capital jumped to a new light. The floods in France or the flood of the century the Isar worry most people so that they reach dry land back home and have visions of wet basements and moldy furniture. Not so the Brettl-crazies who are always looking for new challenges and uncharted waves. So the film begins with the frantic loading a car, so the surfers come in time to the unique waves. Ensure that they do not necessarily have to drive to the lake, has discovered about thirty years ago one of the protagonists of the film. Dieter Deventer then used as one of the first emerging Eisbachwelle irregular and thus has taken more or less the birth of the river surfing. More and more enthusiasts took advantage of this possibility in Munich, to the resourceful einmontierte Walter Strasser steel beams in the Eisbachwelle (not quite legal, as explained with a smile before the camera) and so enabled a stable wave, you could surf on the day and night. Strasser is a late starter and only came in a relatively advanced age for surfing, but he is the young men in terms of talent in every way. Only with the courtesy he has not so happy times and refers foreign surfers from his territory, which eventually earned him the nickname of “caretaker”. The Eisbach but has produced not only fanatical amateur surfers, but also a professional surfer, as the 35-year-old Quirin Rohleder, who even the nine world champion Kelly Slater proposed a contest. There are three other surfers to speak, where the next wave, the next surf spot is more important than anything else in the world. It is a tight-knit community, which combines this passion with each other. They travel together to the most unusual places and sometimes the police keep on their toes. For example, during floods the river Isar, where the daring plunge into the waves of helicopters and will be asked to leave the water immediately. They do not so long until they are threatened with the arrest. When all the lightness that suggest the men in front of the camera, so each individual, however, aware of the risk they incur. Dieter Deventer can sing a song about it, because one of his daughters, he has also infected with the virus would be surfing, surfing on the Eisbach river at almost lost his life. The sticks in the memory. But, Deventer, it was just a residual risk … Keep Surfing is exciting as a thriller, like a rapidly Music Clip and informative as a Dokupic. Through the magnificent camera work are the feats of the surfers look sharp on their boards sharply depicted, with the capture to the surfboard mounted camera amazing live recordings of the perilous journeys and brought not least through the cutting and assembly technology an extraordinary cinematic experience that for every Nichtsurfer an impressive portrait is. The stunts, perform the Surf freaks serve on their boards, but not for imitation. Unless you live near the Eisbach and exercises day in, day out, the 360s, floaters or cut backs. (Silvy Pommerenke)
