Have you heard of indoor surfing? It is becoming more and more popular, and it is clear why – it has brought entertainment and beach pleasure to cities. Thanks to a modern simulator, anybody from 6 to 99 years of age can now enjoy the delightful feeling of surfing a wave, for example, in Prague Letňany.
Surfing like in Hawaii
This kind of entertainment will fascinate both beginners and advanced sportsmen. It simulates the feeling of classical surfing, and as for the surfing tricks, it allows even more of them. Indoor surfing offers a unique experience in any weather – entertainment for families and groups of friends. This adrenalin sport with competitions and exhibitions where surfers can show off with their somersaults, flips and other tricks is getting more and more popular all over the world.
A party for the 21st century? Cocktails, music, and surfing!
The first artificial wave for the public was built in Texas in 1991, and since then hundreds of them have been built in global cities. Prague has a surf arena as well – the multifunctional complex with an indoor surfing simulator, music club, café and outdoor terrace is a dream-come-true for many business and private parties.
Even more tricks than in the sea
The indoor surfing simulator is a special pool, where a strong stream of water is constantly driven on a soft foundation. Every newcomer first attends a training lesson on how to behave on the simulator, and then, they can happily frolic on the waves for minutes or hours, depending on their reservation. The easiest way is to begin is to surf on your belly; then try to kneel on the board, and finally, stand up and try tricks such as carves, jumps, tube riding or other manoeuvres.
