FlowRider® Brings Surfing to Waterbom Bali!!

wbWe all know that Bali has epicsurf – it is the stuff of legends.  Now, Bali has the legendary FlowRider simulated surfing machine to bring the thrill of surfing to those who may never have the opportunity to venture to Uluwatu!

The FlowRider surf machine relies on pumping water in a thin sheet up a ramp, which in our case is THE safest ride surface in the industry.  The patented tension fabric ride surface is like a trampoline, unlike other ride surfaces which are basically “gym mat” foam glued on a substrate, and it absorbs impacts that occur when riders are surfing over a 24 mph fast moving sheet of water.

Santo Gulino, President Director of Waterbom Bali, is always on the leading edge of new water-park attractions, and Whitewater West has delivered numerous new products in the last couple of months.  The FlowRider sheet wave just happens to be the icing on the cake.

IMG_0769The commissioning and training of the FlowRider, was led by multiple World Champion Eric Silverman.  Eric has years of experience in riding and training, so we expect some great riding to be coming from our friends in Bali soon!
