Now that we’re in the depth of winter, it’s easy to fall victim to the fabled winter blues. And no one feels this more acutely than lovers of outdoor sports. After all, even if you’re adventurous enough to brave the cold, sometimes the weather outside just gets in the way of your favourite watersport.

Luckily, we have just the solution to help get you through the freezing months and tide you over until summer.

Introducing the FlowRider®, Cardiff’s indoor bodyboarding machine

Perfect for avid surfers as well as complete beginners, our Indoor Wave machine is designed to offer visitors all the excitement of surfing, away from the cold shores of the beach. Housed at CIWW, the FlowRider® wave simulator is one of only a few in the UK and it’s open year-round, so you can get your surfing fix come rain or shine.

The indoor bodyboarding machine gives eager surfers the perfect opportunity to ride the waves even on the coldest winter days, so they don’t have to rely on the turn of the season to indulge in their passion. In fact, FlowRider® is far more than a winter warmer for surfer souls – it’s also a fantastic alternative for flat days when the sea just won’t cooperate.

You don’t have to ride solo either! There are two lanes available on the wave simulator, so you can make your visit to our wave simulator a group activity, and ride alongside your friends. In fact, you could even bring an audience – we have a dedicated viewing area for the less aquatically inclined members of your party.

In addition to being the favourite winter hangout of passionate surfers, our Indoor Wave sessions give you the opportunity to learn the basics of bodyboarding while staying safe and warm. Featuring expert coaching for beginners, tips on riding the waves and all the specialist equipment required, the sessions are open to anyone above 107cm tall, regardless of their previous experience with water sports.

Spread the surfing joy

Whether you’re a surfer yourself and you’ve experienced the joys of FlowRider® first hand, or you know someone who’s longing for quality time on the waves, our Indoor Wave experience vouchers are the perfect opportunity to gift your loved ones an unforgettable bodyboard ride in the comfort (and warmth!) of the city.
