hey guys whats up. <BR> I'm off to germany on a mission trip for 6 months through (ywam) a christian mission organization. ANd i was wondering if there are any fellow german amigos? that wakeboard and would like to see what a good ole American can whip up on a wakeboard (let me tell ya not much)!! <BR> I will be holed up in Munich, Germany and should have some time off during the christmas holidays! ALthough it might be cold, and yes i am hoping to snoboard the swiss alps, i was wondering if anyone who reads this post could help out a fellow wakeworlder. I remember how 1 dude wakeboarded in iraq, and i thought it would be awesome to board in germany ( OR EVEN ONE OF THE SURROUNDING COUNTRIES!!!) i should be also visiting france, italy, spain and hopefully amsterdam as well, GOd willing. sO hit me up here or at <a href="mailto:germanyhereicome@hotmail.com">germany hereicome@hotmail.com</a>. I am leaving tomorrow the 14th of sept and should be there untill april. thanks- t

Dude, I spent a week over in Germany in June. Munich is AWESOME!!! Make sure to check out the cable park, river you can surf, and i forgot the name of the mountain (snowboarding). But also hit the Haufbrau House, etc.....

There are cable parks all over Germany (44 to be precise) so you should bump into a few on your way

Travis <BR> <BR>all the links in 1 place <a href="http://www.wasserski.de" target="_blank">www.wasserski.de</a> <BR> <BR>they even have a couple of clockwise cables for the regular riders (but I'm not sure where they are) <BR> <BR>have fun...

Travis, try these guys; <a href="http://www.hydrofoiling.de" target="_blank">www.hydrofoiling.de</a> . They ride all year round!! I have been with them and they are awesome wakeboarders and skyski'ers. I rode with them last winter (our boat was winterized) and it was crazy (2 degrees above 0 (water and air)). They had to break the ice in the harbour to let the boat in the water, but the water was glassy!!! Perfect, they have hot water in the boat etc. So they are prepared, bring a good steamer or a drysuit and you can wakeboard behind the boat in december in Germany! <BR> <BR>Tommy

Austria is pretty good, but my favourite resort in Tignes, France <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

I talked to a guy at a shop in the center of Berlin and he said the closest cable park was about 45 Kilometers away from Berlin. He called it Cableboarding.

travis, <BR>you can board year round in minden/hannover ( is in the north of germany )with us. super air nautique with heater, but the water is very cold, so you need a drysuit or big neo. some pics you see at <a href="http://www.wakeboardfreunde.de" target="_blank">www.wakeboardfreunde.de</a> look at termine, you see the boat ready for winter <BR>good sites are <a href="http://www.wakeforum.de" target="_blank">www.wakeforum.de</a> or <a href="http://www.wakeboard1.de" target="_blank">www.wakeboard1.de</a> <BR>from germany <BR>jens <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wakejens on September 21, 2004)
