You can experience the thrill of catching and riding a wave on our indoor surfing and body boarding FlowRider®. All sessions last one hour and involve up to eight riders at a time. Your first booking will include a safety session.

The FlowRider® surfing machine, the only one North of Bedford, generates a sustained wave effect, giving people the opportunity to have a go at surfing and body boarding in a safe environment under the supervision of the FlowRider® trained team.

- Minimum height for body boarding is 3ft 6in/107cm

- Minimum height for surfing is 4ft 4in/132cm
