“Hang Loose”: As an international scene meeting for motorcyclists, surfers and skaters, the festival of Wheels and Waves held in Biarritz, southern France, enjoys a great deal of popularity. This year, the beach spectacle had to take a rain check because of the pandemic, very much to the regret of BMW Group Classic.
But the spirit of the event lives on and sometimes the very special melange of breaking waves and the sound of engines can also be experienced in Munich. A team of photographers has searched out some hotspots for bikers, surfers and skaters in the city. The starting point was the Boxer Bar at the headquarters of BMW Group Classic located on Moosacher Straße. The next stop was surfing on the legendary Eisbach Wave in the eponymous river running through Munich’s English Garden, driving in a first-generation BMW 528 and a classic Mini Pick-up with the boards. Then it was on to the Olympic Park for skating. The outcome: cool rides, surfer feeling and skate culture.
