One of the Most Interesting Extreme Sport Flowriding

The extreme games like surfing, bodyboarding, skateboarding, skimboarding, snowboarding and wakeboarding are generally played outdoors but Flowriding is an indoor alternative of most of these extreme sports. Yes Flowriding is an indoor game played on a 14 wheel skateboard. The sport was founded in late last century.

How Flowriding is Played?

A Flowrider rides on an artificial wave which are technically called the ‘sheet waves’. The sheet wave are created by some powerful pumps which are projected a three inch layer of a water which has a speed of 20 MPH to 30 MPH. The water flows up and over the surface which is actually made to replicate the shape of the  ocean waves. The sheet waves do not move but the movement is engineered from the water flowing over the stationary surface. The flowriders generate their speed from the energey the water gets from the flow. A flowrider has to perform turns and tricks within a small area with basic to sophisticated terminologies designed by the rule.

The Flawboard

The Flawboard is also known as a stand up board in popular terms. The boards come with different shape, length, material and angle and also the curves. The board even comes with strapped and unstrapped variants as well. One Flawboard ranges in different lengths which are 910 millimeters (36 inches) to 1040 millimeters (42 inches) and also in width from 280 millimeters (11 inches) to 356 millimeters (14 inches). The weight of a Flawboard varies between 1.4 kilograms to 2.8 kilograms. The rotation tricks difference are varying from 90 to 180 to 360 degrees.

Flowboarding League of the World of FLOW is the organization which seems to be regulating the Flowboarding sport. But it is only the name which comes across and by searching online, we can’t see its website or any other information.  Yes there is one US Flowboarding Association or USFA which is an upcoming league for both the recreational and professional riders. It also has its own website and has strong presence among the US Flowboard riders.
