Murbreak Riversurf Contest 2012

Every year riversurfers from Austria join the “Murbreak Riversurf Contest” at the Radetzky bridge on the river Mur (pronounced “Moore”) in Graz. After an unsuccessful year 2011 with no contest due to low water levels the sixth Murbreak Riversurf Contest was held on 24th of June 2012 with a perfect water level of 410cm.

In spite of the late announcement (water level forecast is only possible for a few days) there were 28 surfers. Very good weather condition, too. There were a lot of arials, three-sixties, one-eighties, ollies and other tricks. Finally Flo Wagner beat last contest’s winner Stefan Schafgassner. Third and fourth place went to Wolfgang Taucher and Michael Reitmann. Two girls also took part in the contest. Chrissi Rieger reached place 9 and Lisa “Dr. Lisa” Veith place 16.

Börny was forced to surf the river Mur in Graz / Austria for the first time in 2010 (by PhilK) during the time he made a movie called 'murtreiben' about the local riversurfing scene (sounds very similar to PhilK's story). Since then he decided to surf rivers instead of making movies. And now there is Riverbreak!
