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.

Surf style is a great place for indoor surfing right on Clearwater Beach! My kids loved it and instructors are there to help out. Can't wait to take them back!

If your in the Clearwater area for a visit or vacation, you have to stop by Sur-Style. They actually have several stores in the area and all of them are worth visiting! The selection of items, clothing, and souvenirs is the best in the area by far. The indoor surfing machine is crazy. We didn't try it out but the... More

My Grandsughters (8 and 13) and 19-year-old grandson really enjoyed our most recent visit to the Flowrider! It is great fun and a good exercise in balance. The She Shreds events on Wednesday have been great learning sessions for the girls and the price is reasonable!
