Mud season is here and what better way to clean off some of that dirt than getting into the most exciting and challenging action sport of the season at the Flowrider Facility near you! If you call yourself a shredder and are always up for a good challenge, becoming a Flowrider may be right up your alley.
What Is Flowrider?
"The club can’t even handle me right now…” Oops sorry wrong ‘Flo-Rida’. While the beats are bumping you can experience the other Flowrider, an indoor (or outdoor) machine that creates a sheetwave of water and allows riders to experience a whole new level and type of board sport.
Think of it as a hybrid version of surfing, wakeboarding, and skateboarding — but without the ocean part. Basically it’s a wave in a box with over 10,000 gallons of flowing water. And now you’re probably saying, “Huh … but how? Take our suggestion and just check out this cool new board sport that allows riders to experience the excitement all over the world indoor or outdoor.
Why Should I Try It?
The real question is: why shouldn’t you try it? Flowriding is a great experience that you can’t get anywhere else. You don’t have to fight the current to get the perfect wave, it’s always a challenge, and a different ride every time. It’s also a great chance to watch others that perform it; which makes a great atmosphere for learning and challenging yourself.
If you are a surfer, wakeboarder, skim boarder, snowboarder, or even just interested in trying, it will be a challenge for you every time. The elements and flow of the water are constantly changing and no ride is the ever the same. Women in boardsports are constantly looking for excitement and a challenge and Flowriding is a perfect activity to try out during the spring months when you are waiting for the temperature to rise.
Another great reason to try it out is to use different types of muscles you aren’t used to. Instead of riding a wave for a few seconds or getting pulled by your boat, the Flowrider does the water work for you. Which allows you to try tricks, new techniques, and work some core muscles that may have been slacking in the winter months. You can spend more time on the water and less time worrying about getting yourself set up for the next wave. It’s already there for you.
