What is Flow House?
Flow House Bangkok is an awesome urban beach club featuring a FlowRider simulated wave surfing machine, plunge pool, cafe and bar. Bangkok is home to the first Flow House facility in South-East Asia and part of a family of Flow and Wave Houses that stretch from California to the UK to South Africa to Singapore and now Bangkok!
The centerpiece of Flow House Bangkok is the FlowRider Double system – a simulated wave surfing machine that is a sport in its own right.
What is Flowboarding?
FlowBoarding and BodyBoarding is FUN!!!
FlowBoarding is a hybrid sport that has been evolving since the 1980s. A combination of surfing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, skimboarding and skateboarding – if you have experience in any of these then you will LOVE FlowBoarding…
If you like bodysurfing, bodyboarding or knee-boarding then BodyBoarding on the FlowRider will be the ultimate thrill.
The FlowRider at Flow House Bangkok is a perpetual wave that you don’t have to swim out to and don’t have to battle to catch – the wave is always running and always just a step away! Come rain or shine, night or day – conditions are always perfect at Flow House!
Who is FlowRider for?
Anyone who is over 107cm (42″) can enjoy Bodyboarding, and over 133cm (52″) can enjoy stand-up Flowboarding. The FlowRider is for people of all ages from 5 to 80-years-old. Whether you’re an experienced surfer, wakeboarder, snowboarder, or a total newbie, we’ll have you stand-up Flowboarding or Bodyboarding in no time at all.
We have all the equipment free to use and qualified charismatic instructors on-hand to help you every step of the way whether you’re just learning to stand up or trying to land your first kickflip.
Is FlowRiding an Xtreme Sport?
Yes, FlowRiding is an Xtreme Sport, the machine has been developed in San Diego, USA since the early 1980s, and there are more than 130 machines running everyday around the world. There are no hard surfaces and everything is padded. The ride surface is plastic tension fabric that bounces similar to a trampoline.
Flow House Bangkok considers Rider Safety to be a top priority. We consider FlowRiding to be an extreme sport and ask anyone with a sports injury, neck injury, bad-back, and anyone who has recently undergone surgery or is pregnant not to ride.
All first-time riders visiting Flow House Bangkok must sign the FlowRider Waiver Form. Wave Sessions are supervised full-time by Flow House Qualified Wave Instructors, and if it is your first time they will ask you to do 3 compulsory BodyBoard runs to familiarise yourself with the ride and water.
In case an accident happens we’ve got a First-Aid station and trained staff to help you get patched up.
Flow House Bangkok reserves the right to remove any person from the ride who we consider to be acting in a potentially harmful or inappropriate manner.
Is FlowBoarding easy?
Sure! If you have ever snow, wake, skate, kite, body or skim boarded then you’ll have no problem picking up FlowBoarding. The skill set is quite similar but still quite different and challenging at the same time. Riders from a pure surfing background also dig it, after all there is no easier or convenient way to get on the water than on a FlowRider!!
If it’s your first time and you have never tried any board sports before then don’t worry, we have qualified instructors to show you the way every time you get on the wave.
What if I don’t know how to ride?
Every Wave Session includes free use of our surfboards and bodyboards as standard and includes instruction and supervision from the Flow House team of qualified Wave Instructors.
A standard one-hour session is normally enough for an average rider to learn the basics of bodyboarding and stand-up surfing. After that you can begin to pick up more accomplished carving moves and some basic tricks.
Should I make a reservation?
It’s always best to call ahead to check that your preferred time is available – especially at the weekends.
Walk-in bookings are still cool though and we should have no problem in getting you on the wave for the current or next Wave Session.
Entry to Flow House Bangkok is totally free of charge, we have plenty of space to come in and relax, so whether you want to surf or not you’re always welcome to come in and enjoy the vibe. Wi-Fi access is FREE, as are our laughs.

Is Flowboarding a sport?
Flowboarding is a hybrid boardsport, which has been evolving since the 1980’s. The sport combines the progression, maneuvers, and skills from the core action sports of skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding and to a lessor extent, wakeboarding and skimboarding. These board sports have a strong influence on flowboarding’s direction, style, and energy. Amateur to top professional action sports athletes find flowboarding to be one more pumping board sport to fix their adrenaline needs, as well as an epic cross-over sport.
Imagine not having to wait for swells or perfect surf conditions–not having to wait in a lift line or for a winter storm to cover your mountain. And, one of the best benefits – there’s no more cement to cause the dreaded “road-rash.” Wave Loch’s FlowRider® provides an endless ride with the ability for athletes to perform a variety of skate tricks and carves.
The disciplines of flowboarding include stand-up riding and bodyboarding. While the core followers may be 13-29 years old, there are rippers of all ages world-wide. It is truly a versatile sport for all ages that can meet the diverse needs of each of its participants. While some of the more advanced riders are driven by adrenaline and trick progression, others find enjoyment in a ride grounded in exercise. From a kickflip to a rodeo flip, flowboarding is quickly progressing and gaining traction around the globe.
What is the Crystal Water Project?
The Crystal Water Project is our drive to have clear and clean water for the enjoyment of FlowRiders. This is important for our customers and also for our staff who spend many hours every day in the water.
The Crystal Water Project has 3 parts:
Modern high capacity water filter and treatment system incorporating sand filters, automatic pH monitoring and chlorine injection.
We also ask all surfers to take a shower and clean their feet before entering the FlowRider area.
