Indoor Surfing here we go! - Latest News

What jolly good fun they had!

VICTA go Body Boarding

We've been working with VICTA for a little while now and on 9th March, we took one of the lucky VICTA groups to an Indoor Surf machine......and they loved it! Surfing is actually quite tricky, so in fact, most of the group went body boarding instead, which was equally fun, if not more so.

Indoor Surfing, how?

Well, if you have some sight, have a look at the photos on our Facebook page to see some of the guys and girls in action. If you can't appreciate the photos, here is a written explanation (Bear with us here).

Imagine if you will, a thick robust membrane of material, about 5 meters wide, by 3 meters high, fixed at an angle of around 30 degrees. This membrane forms the basis of a machine known as the FlowRider. The FlowRider powers water over the membrane which then allows a surf board or body board to ride on the water, much like if you were surfing a wave! Pretty cool stuff right!  

Feeling up the FlowRider...

The VICTA group had exclusive use of the FlowRider, which was just perfect. As part of the instruction, the FlowRider was powered down so that everyone could have a good old feel of the machine and get an understanding of how it worked and what they'd be riding the waves on, without being blasted by water... perfect!
