Welcome to Flow House Thundering Surf.  New Jersey's First Premiere wave venue!

What most people don't know is though there are over 100 Flow Rider installations worldwide, we were the FIRST Flow House in the United States.  Whats the difference?  Well it starts with atmosphere.  We surround our Flow Rider with the surf and board sport lifestyle.  Music, parties, food, movies, contests, apparel, and merchandise are all components at our facility that make it truly unique.  Check out all we have to offer in the other pages of the website and get a glimpse of the lifestyle surrounding one of the fastest growing board sports in the country. 

Frequent Questions

What brand boards can I use on the wave? : As far as bodyboards you can use a board from WCB, Flow Daily, Carbon, Cartel, or Flow Rider on the wave.  For stand up riding you can use WaveLoch, FlowRider, Ash, Mak, or WCB.  Regardless of brand, any board with significant damage that could in turn damage the wave surface will not be permitted.

What am I allowed to wear on the wave? : First and foremost proper bathing attire is required.  Jewelry is not permitted on the wave as it can cause physical harm not only to you but also the wave surface.  It could also become lodged in the recovery area grating and potentially hold you under water or abruptly stop that part of your body from moving while the rest of your body moves across the surface.  Hats and plastic/rubber goggles are permitted.  Shoes are not permitted on the wave.

How Private Parties Work

 

When Can I Book? : Private Parties can be booked 8am-9am or 7pm-11pm every day of the week except Wednesday.

When do I have to book? : Private Parties should be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance to allow us sufficient time to announce the blocked out time slots on our websites and to ensure no other guests are booked in the requested time slot.

How do the waivers work? : Every guest that will be doing standup riding must have a waiver completed prior to the party.  You must have your driver’s license or state issued ID in order to complete it.  Any minors under the age of 18 must have their parent present to sign the waiver.  Friends and family members cannot sign for a minor in the parents’ absence.

Can I participate without a waiver? : If a guest is unable to fill out the waiver they may participate but only on a bodyboard.

How Do Lessons Work

 

When Can I Book? : Private Parties can be booked 8am-9am or 7pm-11pm every day of the week except Wednesday.

When do I have to book? : Private Parties should be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance to allow us sufficient time to announce the blocked out time slots on our websites and to ensure no other guests are booked in the requested time slot.

Am I alone on the wave with just my instructor? : During a lesson we block four (4) slots off during your time period as well as a slot for each person taking the lesson, and a slot for each instructor.  If only one person is taking a lesson then it is possible for six (6) other guests to be riding during that time period.  If you have a group of seven (7) people then it will only be your group and the instructor.

Do I need my own board? : We provide stand up and bodyboards at no cost during all hours of operation.  You are welcome to bring your own approved stand up or bodyboards as well.  Any personal boards with signs of wear or damage may be inspected by the manager on duty to ensure it will not damage the ride surface. 

Can I pick my instructor? : If there is an instructor or lifeguard that works here and you would specifically like them to teach the lesson then we will try to accommodate, though we cannot guarantee their availability around the requested day or time.

 

How Does 'Ride All Night' Work

 

When Can I Book? : The Ride All Night special is every Wednesday night from 7pm - 11pm.

When do I have to book? : You do not need to book in advance.

How does the session work? : During a Ride All Night special there is no limit to the number of guests.  Each guest has a number on their wristband that they will show to the lifeguard.  The lifeguard will then assist in determining which rider you will follow to ensure everyone gets the same number of rides.  Ride times depend on the amount of riders but range from 45 seconds to 1 minute.  The time starts when you enter the ride.  If you fall while you still have time you can reenter the wave until it is up.  Everyone is a different skill level so regardless of if you fall or do not, everyone will get the same amount of time to ride.

Do I need my own board? : We provide stand up and bodyboards at no cost during all hours of operation.  You are welcome to bring your own approved stand up or bodyboards as well.  Any personal boards with signs of wear or damage may be inspected by the manager on duty to ensure it will not damage the ride surface.
