    Man...I'll give you props for that one. Deffinatly looks very hard.

    Great job! 8)



    My summer job just bought a 'flowrider'...





    You can boogie board or surf with 50,000 gal/min flowing up at you. Fun to play around on if you can't be on snow. Gotta figure out how to get skis on it ;) ...

    Flowrider

    Dude - you can give me advice on how to surf the Flowrider. I'm taking a cruise on the Freedom of the Seas in November. Although with over 4000 passengers, the waiting list might be a bit long.

    Yeah, as soon as I figure it out.

    Our park sees about 7-8,000 on a busy day. Can't wait to see how long that line gets :roll:

    But by the end of the summer hopefully I will be able to help you out a bit.

    Pat:

    After work on Saturday me and 3 other guards stayed after for about an hour and a half playing on it. (Kinda nice not to have to share with the guests ;))

    I was playing around boogie boarding for a little, just trying to get a better feel for it, and also spent a good bit of time attempting to learn how to surf on it.

    You may have better luck on it as you are a snowboarder. Its probably the closest to snowboarding in deep powder, Keep your weight on your back foot, and use your front leg to keep you straight.

    I started standing on the board on the side of the ride, and then pushing off another guard (who was standing) until I got into the water. Then I let go of him and tried to balance (could do it for about 30 seconds)... After you get the feel of it, you start from the land infront of the water spray, then slide into it. After that (probably takes about 10 hours on it to get past that point)...You would be dropping in from the top, which is really hard to do. Tony one of the lead guards at Camelback has been there everyday and is the 'Flowmaster'...Crazy good at it. He was busting out 360s on the surfboard, carving back and forth, and doing all these other crazy tricks. Deffinatly not the usual ride where you sit on the tube and go down :roll:

    I think there are a few different types of Flowriders, so the progression of surfing might be different for each one. I think on Boogie boarding you always start at the top unless you are a little kid, inwhich case you get pushed into the water from the bottom.


    One last thing, if you ride it a lot, you might be hurting a little the next day...The falls don't hurt to start, but after a while you start to feel it more. Had a little knee to forhead action :shock:


    Have fun!

    Thanks

    Thanks, Dude,

    I'll try to remember your suggestions. I did a little surfing in college (a LONG time ago) so hopefully some of the instincts will still be there.

    On the other hand, I'll be just one of nearly 3000 passengers. Can you imagine how long the waiting line will be?

    Haha Yupp I can. I'll try to run down to CB on one of my days off with a camera when their are 8,000 people in the park and snap a picture of the line for ya ;)

    But on a cruise aren't 2950/3000 guests eating while 30 of the remaining ones are sleeping or throwing up :? :wink:

    I lost count. However, most of the time it was a case of how quickly can you turn your head away from them. 50,000 gal/min at about 40mph...

    Fun ride, its addicting.
