No beach, no problem. A few of us went out to Elk Grove on Sunday to give the flow rider at Surf Extreme a go. Let's just say that 30 MPH water being shot up a 6 ft tall ramp makes for a good time.
It was a fun way to spend a Sunday morning and not too pricy at 20 bucks per hour. Part of the time we were there it was pretty crowded and we waited in a 5-10 minute line to get in another fall. The second hour we were there it cleared out and we go to do ride after ride, spill after spill.
I would definitely reccomend heading out to Elk Grove to give this a shot. If you are injury prone, you might want to spectate. Although it is water and the ramp is pretty forgiving, the falls happen fast and there is potential to get a little whip lash or twisted limbs. They do have body boards which are much easier to ride and much more forgiving than the surf decks. Many of the kids were using the body boards, but not surprising, the kids all seem to learn surfing the wave faster than the adults.
Try new things!
