Does the idea of tackling a current make you crave the waves? Perfect for those with a sense of humour and determination, whether you're a seasoned surfer or complete beginner, this experience is sure to be memorable one.
Surfing is a fantastic challenge and great fun for everyone and not to mention it makes you look pretty cool. But sometimes, the not-so-tropical temperatures, sand, sea gulls, sharks and stones can understandably result in second thoughts when it comes to braving the surf. Indoor surfing will take the waves out of Mother Nature’s hands, enabling you to enjoy the ultimate surf free of any distractions. By concentrating solely on the rush of the current, rhythm of the waves and your own style of surf, you will have a chance to put your endurance skills to the test!
Your surf session will take place on an innovative piece of technology named The Flowrider®, which simulates a real wave, in a safe indoor environment, guaranteeing sand free socks and no sharks in sight. Combining features from surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and wakeboarding, this experience is a truly unique way to gain the ultimate adrenaline rush. High-powered submersible pumps fire a constant 100,000 litre film of splash to create the 10 meter wide continuous sheet wave. The water is also only a few inches deep and simply travels over the taught rubber surface that acts as a cushion for any falls.
On arrival, you will be welcomed at reception, before being checked-in and changing into your wetsuit, but remember to bring your own swim wear for underneath. You’ll then receive a safety briefing and short practice session, delivered by your expert instructor. You and your group will then have the opportunity to test out your surfing skills, with one hour riding the waves. As a reminder of your experience, you will be able to take home a USB memory stick documenting your surfing experience.
Whether this experience sounds ideal for you or a fellow water baby, you will be sure to leave with a smile.
