FlowRider president, Marshall Myrman, said: “We all live, eat, sleep, and breathe surfing at FlowRider. FlowSurf isn’t real surfing because you are not in the ocean, and it takes out the most difficult parts of surfing.

“River waves, which FlowSurf is modelled after, provide an amazing and fun experience on a surfboard where you cut and carve a continuous deep flow wave. Surfers of all levels will be able to work on their skills and have an absolute blast on this wave.”

FlowRider design and development engineer, Eliza Dawson, added: We knew that to create the best possible ride experience, we needed to replicate the incredibly smooth flow found in some naturally occurring river waves, which is a huge challenge in a stationary wave system since pumps introduce turbulence. To solve this problem, we took inspiration from nature. We observed that the roots of mangrove trees have a smoothing effect on water, which inspired the water smoothing technology used in the ride.”
