Please note that the Groupon voucher has now expired but you can still buy this fantastic Flowboarding experience (which is still a bargain for the amazing day you’ll have for either £39 for 1 person or £75 for 2 people at Red Letter Days.
This morning when I woke up I reached under my pillow to find my phone and check my emails. It was only 6:30 and the 2nd batch of the Olympic tickets went on sale at 6, so my first thought was to re-try for tickets, but then I saw an email in my inbox which channelled my thoughts elsewhere – 62% Off Flowboarding Introduction – Yes, please!!
This is the second time that I’ve seen this on Groupon, the first time was in November and I snapped up 4 tickets for my Dad, my boyfriend, a friend and myself. We went along at the end of February and it was BRILLIANT! I’ve tried wakeboarding, bodyboarding and snowboarding, and being pretty useless at all 3 I thought this would be the same, but I love nothing more than throwing myself into a new sport so I was really excited to give it a try and the good news is that it’s easy to pick up the basics (unlike wakeboarding where I spent 3 hours face-planting the water after 2/3 seconds of leaving the platform!), it’s indoors so you don’t get cold, and when you do fall off it doesn’t hurt at all because the Flowrider is completely padded and you can see from the photo below how shallow it is too.
The 1 hour experience is really action packed. You start off laying on the flowboard which is like bodyboarding and they get you doing lots of fun things like swapping your board with someone else, kneeling on the board, doing a forward roll etc. and then after you’ve mastered this, you move on to standing on your board which is similar to surfing (but completely backwards as the water is flowing in the opposite direction.
I can’t recommend it highly enough, it’s a great experience and everyone in the group we joined (probably 15 people in total) were dying to try it again, and now this Groupon has appeared I will certainly be booking up straight away as it’s the bargain price of £15 – which is usually £39.99 (in fact I’ve already booked another 4 before I started typing!) If you want to give it a go click here to book, but hurry as the offer ends at midnight.
