About Surf-Style Flowrider Indoor Surfing Wave Machine
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.

Great customer service, the wave is a tad dated, water flow is odd and the flowrider is very soft, it does take time to get used to a single( I had only done doubles). I had read a lot of bad reviews about how hot inside the flowrider was, however, that was not true temperature was fine. You get free parking which is an added extra. Overall, I plan to return. Fun time and good people.

I started riding flowrider about a year and half ago. It turned into one of my favorite activities. I recommend purchasing a membership if you plan on riding multiple times. I wish I could post some of the videos. John and Matt were the best instructors

We always look to shopping here as we stay at the Hyatt next door for a week every year I was in the store multiple times the week of June 2, 2019 to buy clothes , gifts , groceries and a skate board. I have watched this store steadily go down hill for no other reason than the poorly trained non service minded kids that work there. Tuesday night I needed help finding a few things and not only was help refused but done so in a hateful manner with no respect for my family or any sense of care. The employees are evidently hate working there and it shows. Finally I politely walked out leaving over $ 300 in items in the store that we carried around the store before making our way out the door. 2 girls working at the front of the store sorting inventory looked at us like we had lost our minds when we asked to be pointed in a direction for some popular hats they had in stock. We are a kind polite family and we are simply shocked at level of disrespect we had been shown. It’s really quite a shame. We had been fans of the store. We will shop elsewhere from now on. It was so pathetic we just eventually had to laugh.
