The Alpine Coast of Austria - vid by expat Australian John Chapman

24 March 20

“Alm Canal Salzburg. I am a 70-year-old Aussie surfer and I was made most welcome. Back on a shortboard, and my performance levels were well below the locals, but was made their honorary old man of the river. They have surf film and music festivals, and it’s an Alpine Surf Coast with as vital a beach crew as I’ve ever seen.

“The Grigoryan Brothers were kind enough to give permission to use their music for this vid.”

Our correspondent John Chapman is a long-time reader of PLB who lives and works in Austria these days, and who in recent years has become hooked on surfing the rivers of Europe and documenting this burgeoning sport. We ran a great article with words and photos from John in our Issue 100.
