Ogden’s Flowrider was temporarily closed for upgrades and a remodel, but it’s reopened and allows you to experience the thrill of surfing without being near an ocean. They call Flowrider a wave in a box, and how it works is an engine drives 10,000 gallons of flowing water to create waves you can ride! It’s a perfect way for a beginner to learn the basics of surfing, or is great for perfecting your surfing skills. Flowrider times are generally booked in advance, so call 801-528-5352 for reservations. Right now you can also get grand reopening discounts sent to your phone by texting 89800. The Flowrider is open Monday–Saturday. flowriderutah.com
