Surf’s Up in Kissimmee

Filed under: Entertainment,Florida News,Just For Fun,Leisure,Vacation Tips |

Central Florida is not known for surfing but now it really is possible to enjoy catching a wave  even when you’re landlocked and nowhere near the ocean. Fantasy Surf is an indoor surfing facility in Kissimmee, just down the street from Walt Disney World, that opened last week and is now ready for adventurous waveboarders and surfers of all experience levels to hit the waves.

The new 14,000 sq. ft. building features a 49 foot long, 32 foot wide double FlowRider. The FlowRider uses high-pressure pumps to create as much as a 35 MPH three-inch sheet of water… although it appears to be a lot lot faster!  The water flows from a 55,000 gallon tank and uses a high pressure pump to simulate an ocean wave. Some describe the FlowRider as having the look of surfing / wakeboarding, the ride of snowboarding and the tricks of skateboarding.

Fantasy Surf ‘s official address is Kyngs Heath Road but you’ll find it easier to find if you simply remember it’s located between US 192 and SR535 on Poinciana Blvd.  Fantasy Surf also includes a surf shop called, appropriately enough,  “Offshore Surf Shop, an American grill style restaurant called “The Lull” and an area with large, flat-screen TVs for parents to watch their kids.

Thirty-minute sessions, including the rental of the specially designed FlowRider board and a lesson on how to surf, start at $25. Fantasy Surf offers a safe environment to catch a wave and beginners are welcome as the ride features padded floors, walls and benches for the inevitable tumble.

You must be at least 42-inches tall to body board on the FlowRider and 52-inches tall to flow board. The FlowRider is available from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. Fantasy Surf can be contacted at 407-396-RIDE.

So now riders really can  experience the thrill of surfing without the sunburns and the sand of the beach as the climate-controlled Fantasy Surf is open year-round. Here’s a short video :
