Isar Wave Plattling

The Isar Wave – caused by ground sills in the Isar river bed – is a 30 meter wide, well-known kayak playspot in southern Germany; therefore heavily crowded during weekends. Kayakers are on the left, rivers surfers on the right side of the wave (downstream). It’s important to stick to local rules and read the signs at the location.

Spot Details


  • Friedhofstraße, 94447 Plattling, Germany


  • Coming from Passauer Straße turn to Friedhofstraße. Directly after the underpass turn left into a gravel road and park alongside the dam. At normal water levels you can pass the dam and park straight at the river, but during highwater the police is closing the area. Finally when the water is rising don’t sleep near the river.

How to Get There

Wave Details


  • From 1.70m-2.60m the spot is like a hole with very small green areas on the edge, the wave is powerless but can be surfed with boogey boards.
  • At 2.60m on the right shoulder of the spot there is a good green surfable wave.
  • Up to 3.10m the wave is surfable and on good days you have a 30m green wave. At around 3m the Isar river bursts its banks.
  • Above 3.10m the wave flattens out but can be surfed with longboards.


  • Flat wave at all water levels. Entry on the right side of the river (downstream). Keep momentum while paddling through the eddie and enter the wave from behind next to the concrete wall.


  • The gravelly river bed has no dangerous rocks and is deep enough.
  • For good swimmers the wave is not too dangerous up to 2.60m. During high water the currents are very powerful and may suck you down for a short time (1-2sec).


  • There is a very long eddy (up to 60m) enabling you to easily paddle back into the wave.

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!
