Whoever says the Wiener (inhabitants of Vienna) are not "hip" is wrong. Today Vienna Online reported about a Dutchman, Duncan Zuur, surfing in San Marco Square in Venice.
Year after year, Zuur had traveled to Venice with his team to do this. Yesterday, with high waters in San Marco square rising + 1.35m, he succeeded. He met his goal just before the police made it down to stop them.
The BBC posted another video of the stunt here.
