The FlowRider takes in all aspects of board sports. It has the look of surfing, the ride of snowboarding, the tricks of skateboarding, and boards derived from wakeboarding. By generating a thin sheet of water, no more than three inches deep, that flows over a stationary wave, you can carve and turn, ride up and slide down the simulated wave surface.

The FlowRider moves 40,000 gallons of water at 25 mile per hour to create an endless wave. With a ride surface that is amazingly over 4 meters wide and with 28 sq meters of carvable landscape, the FlowRider provides a ride surface wide enough to do the most radical turns you can imagine, and don’t forget the kick flips, shuvits, ollie’s and varial’s that will help to improve anyone’s riding ability!

This is a fun activity for all skill ranges from novice to experts and offers an ideal activity for both children and adults. At Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart we will be offering activities for:

  • Birthday Parties
  • Schools/Youth Groups
  • Kids after school sessions
  • Corporate events
  • Hen/stag groups
  • Family fun sessions

We don’t expect many people to have been on a FlowRider before, there aren’t that many around! All sessions are lead by a qualified instructor and the soft membrane ride surface makes the FlowRider a great way to learn to ride in a safe and controlled environment.

This is a very strenuous ride and the moving water is extremely turbulent. You need to be:

  • Must be minimum of 1.1m tall to use the Bodyboard and atleast 1.3m tall to use both the Bodyboard and Flowboard
  • Riders must be in good physical condition and free from any physical limitations to participate.
  • Pregnant women and persons with or having a history of heart, back, neck, shoulder or joint problems should not ride.

Remember bathing suit tops, bottoms and loose clothing may be pulled off by the flowing water.
