Father-Son Trio Rip Munich Airport’s Man-Made Wave

With more crowded line-ups, a growing hatred of localism, and some people's lack of access to a good break, the age of manufactured waves is now upon us. Kelly Slater set the internet on fire when he released an edit of him surfing his top secret wave pool. This video takes us to the next jump in standing wave technology. Called the City Wave, "This deep water standing wave is one of a kind in its ability to deliver a quality wave, safe environment to learn, and cost effective solution to supplying waves to the masses."

The City Wave hosts the Beschen family, consisting of Shane, Noah, and Coda. Together the father/grom duo destroyed the standing break, which is located at the Munich Airport. This looks like it could take the whole airport layover purgatory to the next level.

Jamie O'Brien has surfed Pipeline as much as just about anybody, but his recent wipeout proves that even pros need to stay on their guard. It was a solid day at the break, with manageable four-to-six foot high barrels. Unfortunately, Mr. O'Brien's day at the beach was cut short after slammed his head into either his board or the reef during a fall.  Related: Nathan Florence Gets Barreled on the North Shore After several seconds underwater, O'Brien's float suit brought him to the surface.

Video: Surfing A Buttery-Smooth Storm Swell

This GoPro Award-winning video comes to us from four-time kitesurfing world champion Keahi De Aboitiz, who clearly is a pretty good normal surfer as well. He catches a beautiful right-hander during the storm swell from Cyclone Oma earlier this year. Somehow, he manages to dodge several people in the lineup for a 70-second ride.  Related: Surfer and Jetskier Narrowly Escape Disaster at Nazare De Aboitiz's camera comes equipped with GoPro's newest HyperSmooth technology, but the wave and his
