The FlowBarrel, mother of all artificial wave machines, is the closest man has come to recreating the power, challenge and beauty of Banzai Pipeline, Hawaii’s surf reef break. The only FlowBarrel in the United States resides at WaveHouse Beach Club and has challenged everyone from tourists to Olympic gold medalists to flowboard its perfect, tubing wave. This 10 foot wave machine pumps 100,000 gallons of water per minute over a uniquely shaped ride surface creating an endless barreling wave.


The FlowRider is one of the most unique wave riding attractions in the world. It features a patented sheet wave technology which creates an endless wave for riders to both flowboard standing up and to bodyboard, creating a ride unlike anything you have ever tried. With a flexible ride surface your wipeouts will only bruise your ego. The FlowRider at WaveHouse is awesome for all ages and is the antidote to thrill fatigue.

Flowriding, riding a flowboard standup or a bodyboard on a FlowRider or FlowBarrel, is a hybrid boardsport that is a complex equation of riding styles and equipment: Surfing (minus the fin) + Snowboarding (minus the mountain) + Wakeboarding (minus the boat) + Skateboarding (minus the road rash) + Skimboarding (minus the sand).
