Flowrider

The kids gave John a coupon for a 1-hour surfing session at Flowrider for his birthday a couple of months ago. He finally had a chance to use it Saturday.

John and I put the kids on Frontrunner in Woods Cross and picked them up at the Ogden Station, two blocks from Flowrider.

He tried to figure out the technique and tricks to staying on the board for more than a few seconds at a time...

I was worried John would pull the gal in with her skirt...

But no, he went down much quicker than she did.

He got lots of tries during his one-hour session.

...and has the sore body to show for it.

But wait, he let go of the rope...

and success!

After 45 minutes of intense effort trying to stand and then slammed, John decided to finish off with a little body surfing for fun.

The Peanut Gallery enjoying lots of laughs and wishing they'd brought their suits...

My girls wanted to give this same gift to Steve. I will have to show him that John did it and that it was cool!

That looks like so much fun! What a great idea. I may have to have B~ give it a try.
