Since 2011, Asia has exploded onto the flowboarding scene due to several venues in the region installing FlowRider® simulated surfing attractions, and the increasing popularity of the FLOW House brand. Since then, the FlowRider FLOW Tour has expanded its’ competitive regions and created an Asia FLOW Tour to go along with the North American and European Tours.
With successive runs of the FLOW Tour, Asia is running their 5th year of FLOW (Flowboarding League Of the World) sanctioned competition. “FLOW Tour Asia has come a long way and there is no sign of slowing down; venues in Asia are committed to the sport of flowboarding” explained FLOW Events & Sport Coordinator, Adam Muller. Along with the popularity of the attraction, we are seeing the number of ride participants and return customers quickly growing.
“The talent level is rapidly increasing in Asia, don’t count them out for a World Title in the near future” explains Faddy Furreal, FLOW Tour Asia Representative.
Spreading through the months of August, September and October, a five event series will take place in Asia, touring FlowRider venues such as Sunway Lagoon (Malaysia), Flow House Bangkok (Thailand), Flow House Seoul (Korea/Japan/Saipan), Flow House Manila (Philippines) and Wave House Sentosa (Singapore) which will lead up the FLOW Tour Asia Grand Finals at Cartoon Network Amazone (Pattaya) to determine the best flowboarders in Asia.
As we enter the second half of the Asia FLOW Tour, Asia is looking for the top riders who have what it takes to dominate on the waves.
Competitors who earn top spots in the five qualifying competitions will obtain a slot in the Asia FLOW Tour Grand Finals, hosted by Cartoon Network Amazone on October 16th& 17th. Winners in the Pro Flowboard, Pro Bodyboard and Women’s Flowboard division will be crowned Asia FLOW Tour Champions and inherit the responsibility of representing Team Asia and taking on the best flowboarders from around the globe at the World Flowboarding Championships (WFC).
