Aimed to create an authentic Hawaiian experience for travelers passing through Munich Airport, Surf & Style is an annual surfing competition taking place on the world's largest artificial standing wave. The annual surf event draws participants from all over the globe to compete in the event, which takes place at an outdoor portion of Munich Airport Center.
The event is one that points to the repositioning of airports as a center of activity and a potential retail and activation space for brands. Now in its fifth year, the annual event is just one of the unexpected exciting events Munich Airport hosts on a yearly basis.
In 2015, over 24,000 spectators stopped by Munich Airport to check out Surf & Style, while 130 athletes from 14 countries participated.
