    OT Flowrider

    Anybody know the hours/rates and how crowded it gets? Since only one person can ride at a time does it take forever? Going surfing this weekend and want to work on my balance again.

    When I went a couple months ago it was:
    $10 for an hour.
    or $20 all day.
    They had 2 sides, 1 was for body surfing and the other was for regular surfing. However they had a couple guys surfing the other side towards the end of the day. There was about 8-10 people taking turns on the surfing side, but nobody lasted longer than a few seconds so it went fairly quick.

    Its open till ten Mondays thru Thursdays. Super fun. If you get lucky you'll ride so much you're legs will fall off. Caution. Nothing like surfing. Instead of charging the line You stay way back like shredding pow. It will be your new addiction!

    I wouldn't say that. Its different... unlike anything with a board. Don't expect to stay up for long the first time you go. Its funny to see people slam on the ground and get pushed up, everytime was an "OHH!!" and "Damn!". However the landing was surprizing soft. Some people take to it more than others, I think turtlegurl was the best out of the group that went. I can surf, snowboarded and skateboarded efficiantly, but for some reason had a tough time grasping on to it... but its like bowling, even if you suck, its still fun.

    I can hold my own on a snowboard, wakeboard and skateboard and can at least get up on a surf board and it's not like any of them. The board is pretty twitchy. Lots of fun and the crashes are friggin hysterical ... like having the carpet pulled out from under your feet at 20 miles an hour.

    Unless there are alot of good riders there the line goes quick.
