Description: The FlowRider Indoor surf machines let surfers practice without subjecting...
The FlowRider Indoor surf machines let surfers practice without subjecting them to the dangers of strong undertows, jagged rocks, and sharks that denounce the value of a college degree. Amid Surf Style's cavalcade of retail shops, the rushing tides of the FlowRider artificial surf machine lures thrill seekers of all ages. A combination of surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding, FlowRider, which has been featured in the St. Petersburg Times, challenges wave gliders to balance atop surging currents reminiscent of Mother Nature's towering waves. A soft riding surface absorbs inevitable wipeouts, and windows flank the sides of the surf center, allowing onlookers to peer in during each radical carving session. Catering to experienced boarders and rookies alike, FlowRider affords enough riding space to practice tricks, hone skills, and pump veins with more adrenaline than the amount that results from making friends with a T-shirt cannon.Free parking is available inside Surf Style's sprawling garage, which touts a 44-foot-tall marine mural crafted by Guy Harvey. Although not included with today's Groupon, visitors can also take advantage of the beach emporium's retail shops, restaurant, and convenience store.

Fun rainy day activity! You need a reservation and they do 30 minute sessions for $24.00. This is also one of the better surf styles for shopping. Get parking validated at the convenience store.

Pricey but what a blast. Try to go mid day as less busy and better chance to max out ride time. Staff was good too.

In the Midwest, these Flowriders are very few and far between. Nice to see an indoor one for when it's raining!

Our two teenagers had a blast trying the Flowrider for 30 minutes. There are changing rooms and lockers to keep your personal items. There are chairs and viewing areas for family to watch. The instructor cared that the kids had a good time and learned what to do. $25 for 30 minutes was well worth it for them!

Prices were okay, but nothing special. Some items were overpriced, some were average as compared with other stores. Be aware that they don't take returns. They state it pretty openly, so it shouldn't be a shock to anyone shopping there...BUT...pay close attention to what you're charged. We purchased several t-shirts from the same display that stated buy 2 get 1... More

Then I realized that the lady that checked me out there did not give me my card back. She folded the receipts... More
