What is it? Flowrider
Try it at: Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre
Let’s be real, Melbourne: we’re not a surfing people. That said, we do love an opportunity to get wet, which makes the Flowrider surfing simulator at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre the perfect way to trick your body into working out. You begin lying down and holding your board at the bottom of a canvas-covered ramp, before two massive jets of water, pumping at 55km per hour, propel you upwards. You won’t get up on the board on your first (or fifth) try, but when the moment happens, it’s something to text your mum about.
