The first “flowrider” has been opened in the south-central coastal city of Nha Trang by Ana Marina Nha Trang, introducing a new type of sport to local people and contributing to the diversity of activities available to tourists in the beach city.

People who love surfing no longer have to wait for the right waves and can surf anytime they please. Those learning will find it easy and safe, with lessons from professional instructors.

The Ana Marina Flowhouse offers other entertainment activities that attract many young people, such as beach parties, DJs, and live music shows. The Flowhouse joins other activities at Ana Marina Nha Trang such as flyboarding, wake boarding, water skiing, personal boating, and snorkeling.

Flowrider is available in 35 countries around the world. Flowriding (or flowboarding) is a late-20th century alternative boardsport incorporating elements of surfing, body boarding, skateboarding, skimboarding, snowboarding and wakeboarding.

Flowriders ride on artificial waves that are technically known as “sheet waves”. Powerful pumps project a three-inch layer of water at speeds ranging from 12-20 km/h. The water flows up and over surfaces engineered to replicate the shape of ocean waves. Sheet waves are stationary waves, in that the wave does not move forward, and the movement is derived from water flowing over a stationary surface. Flowriders get their speed from the energy of the water flowing at them, and can perform basic to sophisticated turns and tricks within a relatively small area.

Ana Marina is located in Nha Trang, one of the country’s most vibrant resort towns and one of the world’s most beautiful bays, with a large variety of beaches and islands. Ana Marina is the first Marina project in Vietnam, providing sheltered berthing for up to 220 yachts. It also offers a huge range of services and facilities, for dinghies to super yachts. It helps place Nha Trang, and Vietnam, on the global map as a new and luxurious destination for yachting and nautical lifestyles.
