Combining the experience of surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding, this is the coolest new sport around. By generating a sheet of water no more than 3 inches deep, the FlowRider’s waves are safe and easy to ride, giving you a chance to learn to surf in totally safe surroundings. Our instructors will have you standing up in no time and riding the waves like a pro.
