What have “Gletscherzunge”, “Schneckenschlurf” and “Apotheker” got to do with water sport? Well, quite a lot. These are the resounding names of the obstacles, waves and rollers on the Möll, which get the adrenaline flowing in the veins of true water sports fans in the Tschochtan-stretch of the river. A strong current creates waves and rollers and those who have it in them can enjoy manoeuvering on the kayak course. At the end a staggering wave awaits, named after the female water spirit Rusalka.
