2015 Crown of the Traun: Contest Results

Despite the gnarly weather the stoke-factor was at an all time high at the first ever river surfing contest in Bad Ischl, Upper Austria. The Crown of the Traun was a huge success with over 30 river surfers from Austria and Germany who battled it out on the river Traun.

The line-up saw some of the most talented river surfers fighting for the title for more than 4 hours, sometimes accompanied by heavy rainfall. After all, Lukas Haigermoser came out first in the men’s and Christina Minimayr in the women’s final. The contest was held on 23 May 2015 and organised by the local river surf association Rivermates (Salzkammergut) and supported by the Austrian Water Rescue Federation (ÖWR).
