On August 2012, an innovative attraction was launched in Bangkok, where you can learn, practice and simply enjoy closed hall wave surfing – the Flow House.
It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced wave surfer who wants to enjoy his favourite hobby or a newbie who wants to experience and acquire surfing essentials – without the hassle of going to the beach and the need to have suitable weather, wind and wave conditions – the Flow House is the ideal place for you!
The Flow House is located at the center of Bangkok, at the end of Sukhumvit soi 26, (almost at the corner of Rama 4), in A-Sqaure Center, which also offers many restaurants, and an IT computer, cell-phones and gadget center. Right in front of the relatively new center, you’ll find an older, smaller center, called K Villange, which is covered by another article posted on this website.
Other than the surfing facility itself, the “Flow House” offers a shop of clothing, bathing suits and various surfing accessories – Rip Curl – and a small hall which can host events such as birthday parties etc.
On the ‘beach’, you will find tables, sofas and chairs, where you can get comfortable while your child enjoys surfing, and a cafeteria/restaurant with various foods and drinks (I recommend their great burger).
Additionally, the place has professional photo services which will take photos of your kids and capture the surfing experience in a great souvenir. The visitors also have available lockers, showers and bathrooms at their disposal.
Opening Hours – every day from 8 AM to 11 PM.
On Fridays and Saturdays – the place is open until midnight.
Costs – you can enter the “Flow House” free of charge, yet surfing (including equipment and guidance), costs 550 Baht for hour on Mondays -Fridays (until 18:00), and 650 Baht for hour later than that, as well as on Saturdays and Sundays.
What do you have to bring? – other than bathing suit/s – nothing! Everything else is provided on site. If you plan to come as a big group – I recommend calling first to book your place.
Directions – as I have previously mentioned, the “Flow House” is located on Sukhumvit soi 26, right next to Rama 4 and in front of K Village. You can get there by using the elevated train (BTS) to Phrom Phong station or the metro (MRT) to Sirikit Convertion Center, and from there, take a brief taxi ride.
As always – I’m attaching a short presentation/clip I took in the place to give you a taste of the experience…Enjoy!!
