Flowrider: when ocean's gone flat

Surf gone flat? Surf report got it wrong again? That doesn’t matter anymore because the Flow Rider has come to Cornwall. Now you can surf every day of the year no matter what the conditions are like, at The Loop, Retallack Resort & Spa.

By generating a thin sheet of water, no more than 3 inches deep, that flows over a stationary wave, you can carve & turn, ride up & slide down the simulated wave surface.

The Flow Rider at The Loop gives you the experience of surfing, skateboarding & snowboarding in a self-contained & safe environment.

With our bar area, restaurant, shop and changing facilities located at The Loop you can use the Flow Rider, grab a bite to eat or just get a drink and relax in a Fat Boy giant bean bag and watch all the action.

Enjoyed by both spectators & participants, the Flow Rider is a fully interactive skilled sport in the exciting world of aquatic recreation. The Flow Rider at The Loop allows you to surf even when the sea is flat.

Regardless of age & skill levels, the thrill of surfing a wave can be experienced by parents, teenagers & children alike. With a little patience & practice, everyone can enjoy the thrill of surfing, learn the skills of snowboarding & the tricks of skateboarding!

A beautiful chaos, the ultimate surfing wave, a freak of nature, the advanced surfer's testing ground, a specialty wave, the premier tube riding arena, and, ultimately, the Mecca of surfing.
