Where the surf's always up!

Introducing the unique FlowRider™

Surfing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. For many, 'riding a wave' provides the ultimate adrenaline rush.

Now members of the Merton Leisure Club & Aquadome can experience the thrill of surfing, whatever the wind and weather conditions. The FlowRider™ allows anyone to ride a wave without fear - no wind, no tides, just fun!

What is the FlowRider?

'Flowboarding' is a sport that combines the look of surfing, the ride of snowboarding and the tricks of skateboarding. The FlowRider™ sends a thin sheet of water up a sloped, cushioned ride surface to create a wavelike flow of water. It's fun, safe and perfect for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers.

How do I ride the FlowRider™?

After a safety briefing and a few tips for a successful ride from our fully trained instructors, you can set off standing up (flowboarding) or lying down (bodyboarding). Carve, try tricks and otherwise show your stuff as spectators cheer you on from the surrounding viewing platform.

The FlowRider™'s bottom layer is made of soft material and when water flows over it, it feels just like a judo mat. Falling hardly hurts at all and this makes flowboarding a safe sport. If you fall off, just get up and go - again, again and again!
