FlowRider ® Wave-in-a-Box Single
When does 1+1+1 = 1? When it applies to the FlowRider Wave-In-A-Box Single, then yes, our math is geared more towards the synergistic ability of three containers coming together to form one, self contained, incredible, endless wave.
The Wave-In-A-Box (WIAB) is a miracle of creative engineering that only the genius of Wave Loch can provide; a virtual turn key solution to your sheet wave dreams that can be moved from site to site, or that can become a permanent installation under the toughest site conditions.
The WIAB Single is currently the only FlowRider in Aruba (as a permanent installation) and also acts as the FlowRider Mobile for the European community. With a compact design that incorporates electrical and filtration, the WIAB is a bit of a chameleon; permanent mainstay and/or vagabond warrior? But, that is its’ only identity crisis, because once it is put together and the ignition switch is thrown, it delivers the same high octane performance as the FlowRider Single (120hp at 90kW). With a reduced footprint of 6.1 meters x 13.4 meters, the WIAB Single is just the right size for your next event, or your next venue - the choice is yours.
The pedigree is apparent from the start. This is the worlds first, most famous sheet wave, the wave that is the envy of riders and the competition alike - that brings the thrill and adrenaline rush of riding a real ocean wave. Go find one now and be prepared to get stoked!!
Skill Vs. Thrill - Boardsports such as surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding and flowboarding are skill-based activities that challenge riders to develop new tricks to emulate their heroes. By comparison, the typical water park or theme park rides are thrill-based rides. No skill is required and no reward or accomplishment is earned. The more you ride a thrill ride the less thrilling it becomes. This is what we call thrill fatigue. Wave Loch’s skilled-based technology is the antidote to thrill fatigue. The adrenaline rush of successful challenges met, inspires riders to achieve a never-ending cycle of skill based reward, thereby increasing rider visitations and loyalty.
The Sport - Flowriding is not just a ride, it is a sport… a 21st Century alchemy that has the look of surfing, the ride of snowboarding, the tricks of skateboarding, and boards derived from wakeboarding. Since the early ‘90s, the world’s best board riders have cross pollinated
into flowboarding. This new alternative board sport is taken seriously from the mountains to the sea. Flowriding will energize your facility with aspiring athletes (and ‘wannabes’) who will pay again and again to enhance their board riding skills. Not only does this repeat business enhance revenue and spread word of mouth, but the better a rider gets, the greater the show for your viewing audience.
The Lifestyle - Wave Loch DNA is a double helix of wave calculus and wave riding passion. We surf. We live and work at the beach. We infuse our products with our passion and stay close to our roots. Our products are icons of the California beach lifestyle. Wave Loch attractions create an emotional connection to the multibillion dollar board sports industry. Our wave technologies attract the valuable youth market, families and boardsport enthusiasts. When orchestrated correctly, the lifestyle identification inherent in Wave Loch technologies can increase venue revenues beyond those generated by the waves, including sales of food and beverage, retail products, sponsorship opportunities and corporate and competitive events.
Safety - Thrilling to do, thrilling to watch, our ride is designed to handle wipeouts. The FlowRider‘s waveform is a proprietary composite membrane ride surface that is designed to absorb the energy of impacts. Flowboarders may wipe out, but they’ll get back up again and again and again.
