Surfers in Germany - level 3
Europe's top surfers gathered in Munich on Sunday for the third European championship in stationary wave riding. That means they got to ride the world's largest artificial wave.
According to organisers, the Munich championship is a highlight for European surfers who compete on the ten-meter-wide and 1.5-metre high wave. This year, for the first time, a so-called kicker or jump was included to allow the surfers to perform special rides and tricks.
With prize money of 10,000 euros, the contest is divided into four categories. The Men Open, the Women Open, the Masters Open and for the first time Grommets--those aged under 16.
Difficult words: stationary (not moving), highlight (happy moment), divide (separate).
