10 Feb There’s a New Surf Spot in Town
Shred, kick-flip, or spray your way over to the brand new FlowRider wave simulator machine now open in Patong, Phuket! When the ocean is flat or the waves are blown out, surfing and bodyboarding at this new “surf spot” is a fun alternative.
Patong’s newest venue, Surf House Patong, is the coolest hang out spot on the block located just walking distance from the infamous Bangla Street.
Does it really feel like you’re Surfing?
Their simulated wave surfing machine doesn’t actually create waves, but it produces a continuous river-like stream of cool, refreshing water up against the inclined riding surface, which allows riders to flowboard or bodyboard within the padded wave lane.
It may not exactly feel like surfing but the adrenaline rush, skills, and balance it takes to go Flowboarding or Bodyboarding are pretty comparable. And the best part is, you don’t have to wait for any waves to come!
With thousands of gallons of water being pumped and gushing right at your feet and Flowboard, your balancing act better be on point! The ‘endless wave’ shows no mercy on participating patrons. But no worries if you bail (you will bail) because the riding surface is made of plastic tension fabric, which means you’d feel as if you were bouncing off a trampoline!
The one thing that may get bruised is your ego. The FlowRider wave machine is strategically placed in the center of the mini stadium-like set up for all eyes to see and cheer on the brave souls.
It’s all in good fun as entertained spectators help create the awesome atmosphere while throwing down their favorite beers, cocktails, and other delectable drinks offered by the two full bars on site. Hunger cravings are also satisfied as their kitchen offers a good selection of food choices.
