At the beginning get the help from the lifeguard and relax, because when you fall on the foamy bottom it can be sore if you are tense. Try directly at the big flow rider but on a small wave. Ask the guy who choose the size of the wave to put it small. Sizes range from 1-10.
This is a FlowRider. Not a proper wave. It is really fun and has to be tried. That's one of the funnest things I tried. Go early and during the week and you are almost guaranteed to have the wave for yourself. Half price on Tuesdays and on friday's for students so bring your Student cards.
Very fun but nothing in comparison to a real wave. It doesn't really feel like surfing... More like a mix in between wakeboarding and snowboarding. But it is really really fun. Everyone should try this once in his life.
