There is no need to trek to the seaside to learn how to surf this summer as the 02 centre, Finchley Road, will host the FlowRider Mobile surf simulator from 16th July – 3rd August.
The FlowRider Mobile has a 5 metre wave that allows you to surf no matter what the weather. Open from 10am until 9pm at the centre, the mobile surf simulator gives people of all ages the chance to learn how to body or flow board. After an hour’s session with an experienced surf instructor, priced at £29.99, shoppers will be able to ride a wave or even carve a jump.
Continuing the holiday spirit an outdoor summer-themed bar will also be accompanying the FlowRider Mobile so friends and family can watch while you catch a wave. Developed with a focus on safety and fun, the mobile surf simulator is perfect for lovers of snowboarding, skateboarding or wakeboarding. If you have always wanted to try surfing yourself but haven’t had the chance, the FlowRider Mobile is the safest way to have a go.
Jason King, Centre Manager at 02 centre comments: “This surf simulator is a fantastic, fun way of getting some adrenalin action smack bang in the middle of the city. With the summer-themed bar in place and a great mix of restaurants and bars at the 02 centre, we’re hoping shoppers get into the holiday spirit and enjoy the day here.”  
Whilst users do not have to be strong swimmers they need to be comfortable around water as the FlowRider Mobile is a fast moving water ride. Wet suits are provided however women are advised to bring one piece swimming costumes and men securely fitted shorts.
