About Wave House
Wave House is a global entertainment, sport and leisure venue which has bases across the U.S.A., Chile, South Africa, Singapore and now Europe. Housing both the Double FlowRider ® and the more extreme FlowBarrel ® Ten, at Wave House you can learn to or perfect the art of the exhilarating sport that is FlowBoarding.
The FlowBarrel ® Ten is the main attraction and the magnet that draws in the crowds to participate and watch the action. The customer experience is completed with a range of related activities at the venue -from food and drinks to retail and events. The idea was conceived in the surf of California, but whilst there is always a reference to the Californian lifestyle, each venue blends the local culture into its DNA to give it a truly unique character.
The waves are created by multiple, high-energy pumps projecting a layer of water over a surface designed to resemble an ocean wave, creating ‘sheet waves’. Water flows at between 20 and 40 miles per hour, creating a surface which allows flowboarders to ‘ride the wave’. FlowBoarding is an evolution in boardsports and is one of the fastest to learn. It could be considered a combination of skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing, but it is truly a unique sport in its own right.
