Passengers hanging out at Munich Airport in Germany can now hang 10 as well. Free surfing, with complimentary loaner surfboards and wetsuits, is available July 30 through Aug. 24 in a giant standing wave pool set up outdoors between Terminals 1 and 2.

"Surprising our guests is particularly important to us. You will not find a wave like this at any other airport," said airport spokesman Michael Otremba.

Pre-registered guests can surf 10 at a time for 45-minute sessions. Twice a day, a bar will be placed across the water so beginners can hold on.

Non-surfers can watch the action between flights from the poolside grandstand or from a temporary beach, which has palm trees, lounge chairs and a cocktail bar.

This is the fourth year surfing has been an option at the Munich Airport Center, a public space that also hosts an annual beach volleyball tournament and a Christmas Market.
