Surf in the City at Broadgate, London

Surfs up at Broadgate!
Broadgate presents ‘Surf in the City’

Monday 9 July – Friday 13 July 2012
Broadgate Circle, Broadgate, London

Last year's event was so successful, that this year Broadgate decided to do it all again without a sponsor!

Broadgate is tempting Londoners away from their desks and onto the waves this summer with its very own Flowrider surf machine.

Surf in the City arrives at Broadgate for one week from 9 July absolutely free.  The internet isn’t the only thing that workers will be surfing this July!

Broadgate is challenging workers to raise the stakes on their ordinary week, and to pit their athletic ability against the power of the ocean waves, on a FlowRider Mobile that pumps over a trampoline-like surface at over 30 miles per hour.  Teams are invited to compete for a £500 cash prize, based on surfing ability and the number of tricks they can do.

With hour-long slots available from 11am-7pm Monday to Thursday and 10am to 6pm on Friday, teams are urged to reserve their place online now at Each slot is for two groups of four and each session will include a safety video and a demonstration by the instructor.  Wetsuits, changing rooms and locker facilities will be provided.

Mark Evans, Estate Director at Broadgate says “We wanted the opportunity to revolutionise the typical working day and offer something fun, free and adventurous this summer. Flowrider was the perfect fit.  After all, how many people can say they’ve surfed in the Square Mile?!” 

Surf in the City is now an annual event!
