World leader in surfing wave technology.

Peter and John Mel launch Flowrider Double at Moon Palace Resort – Mexico


Guests can Ride the Wave at Moon Palace, the only property in Mexico to feature a FlowRider® Double on property.



MIAMI, Fla. – (November 15, 2012) — Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations – opened its doors to its new FlowRider® Double, an exciting new wave simulator available to guests of Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort. This latest addition to Moon Palace is part of a multi-million dollar enhancement project, and this component is sure to thrill novices and experts alike.

To inaugurate the new FlowRider Double, Moon Palace invited Peter Mel, award-winning professional surfer and co-star of the feature film Chasing Mavericks, to be the first guest to ride the waves at the official launch of this wave simulator. Peter’s son, John Mel, who at only 13 years-old is one of the younger prodigies of the sport, was also a special guest at the interactive inauguration where hotel guests and spectators witnessed the father/son duo in surfing action.

“We’re very excited to be a part of the inauguration of Moon Palace’s FlowRider Double. It’s a great opportunity for John and I to enjoy this awesome resort while we show off the sport at the same time,” said Peter Mel. “A machine like the FlowRider Double really gives users a big taste of just how much fun you can have when surfing. We’ve had a great time at Moon Palace and are looking forward to coming back.”

Created by Wave Loch®, the FlowRider Double pumps thousands of gallons of water each minute to create two lanes of perfect, endless waves and provides hours of surfing excitement for visitors of all ages. Participants can drop in on their own unbroken “wave” and feel the power and acceleration, carve a turn, do maneuvers and cut back. While kids can bodyboard on the new FlowRider Double, the more advanced and adventurous guests can use the standup “flowboards.”

“The FlowRider Double is yet another addition to our ongoing quest to improve the all-inclusive experience for our guests,” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts. “As a company, we are consistently looking for innovative ways to redefine the “all-inclusive” concept and the FlowRider Double is one of the ways we are sure to accomplish just that.”

The FlowRider Double is the latest addition to Palace Resorts’ growing menu of family-focused all-inclusive amenities, branded under the Family Connections concept. This program was designed to strengthen family bonds through one-of-a-kind vacation inclusions aimed at children, but without parents having to sacrifice the premium level amenities and services found at adult oriented resorts. This allows Mom & Dad to reconnect as a couple while also getting the kids to connect with incredible activities, engaging games, and best of all other kids from around the world at the Palace Resorts’ Connection Zones. Palace Resorts introduced these signature kid’s clubs as the centerpiece of the Family Connections vacation experience and they are available at the brand’s four family-friendly properties: Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, Beach Palace, Playacar Palace, and Cozumel Palace. Families can further compliment their getaway by choosing to stay in a Family Connections Luxury Suite with Nanny Service, available at Beach Palace and Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort. These spacious accommodations feature the ultimate in hassle free family vacations with unmatched inclusions such as guaranteed connecting rooms, unique in-suite children’s amenities, nightly cookie and milk service, a private Xbox, daily private nanny service* and much, much more.

Whether staying at Moon Palace, or any of the brand’s seven properties, every Palace Resorts guest is treated to the most attentive service and finest amenities of any all-inclusive concept.
