Surf Ryder Wave Simulator For Kids


Due to Covid-19 this is currently closed.

Kids will love testing out their balance on the Surf Ryder. Whether they're a total beginner or an experienced surfer, they'll love carving up the constant variety of waves in our all-weather, heated surf simulator pool.

Experience what it feels like to stand-up surf or bodyboard your way through an infinite number of wave sizes and shapes from 2 foot rollers to 6 foot tubes on our brand new Surf Ryder wave simulator at Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre! The Surf Ryder is suitable for kids as young as seven (and at least 90cm tall), through to teenagers and the young at heart.

With the pool water heated to a constant 29°C all year round, you’ll relish the opportunity to experience surfing in summer or winter without the fluctuating beach and water temperature. Our undercover wave rider experience allows up to two people to use the facilities at the same time. Book an individual ride or bring a mate for double the surfing fun. Each rider has exclusive use to half of the wave simulator for 30 minutes. Watch your kids carve up the 6 foot wave tube, while Mum or Dad bodyboard on two foot baby rollers at the same time. Riding the surf at Ryde has never been easier or more fun with our brand new waverider attraction.

The surf rider attraction is a great way to improve your balance and learn how to surf the waves in a safe and fully supervised environment. The ever changing shape, size and intensity of the wave is supervised by our qualified staff and operated to suit the surfing skill level of the individual.

Don't worry if they wipe out, it’s like landing on a household mattress - they simply stand, walk off and jump back on their surfboard. The surf rider simulator is a fun way to experience the thrill of surfing without the worry of poor surf conditions or finding sand in your cozzies!

Sessions on the Surf Ryder are usually 30 minutes in duration. Surfboards and bodyboards are provided, but bring your own swimmers, towel and wetsuit or feel free to use one of our rashies.
