Flori Kummer

Skater, medical doctor, snowboarder, founder of the FUS Crew, teamrider for Fatum, creative artist and one of the most innovative river surfers in the world: This is Flo Kummer, a river surfer from Munich, Germany, born in 1977.

Flo started surfing at the age of 15 in Brasil and on the French atlantic coast. When he moved to Munich to study, Flo first came into contact with riversurfing at the Floßlände, but, already being a seasoned ocean surfer, soon made the transition to the Eisbach wave.

Flo keeps bringing skateboarding tricks into the world of river surfing.

A New Kind of Surf Style

Flo Kummer founded the FUS Crew, a group of dedicated river surfers looking for perfect river waves around the world and bringing tricks from the skateboard repertoire to river surfing. The German crew was also the surprise winner of the 2011 inaugural Nike Chosen Crew Video Contest, a competition of 1,700 skate, BMX and surf crews from around the world. The “FUS Jam”, a competitive freestyle surf event in Munich with emphasis on fun and entertainment, is also a must-see for river surfers and everyone who is interested in the sport.

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!
