I am always up for new experiences that are fun. So when The Westin Kierland in Scottsdale invited me to be one of the first people to ride their new Flow Rider, I jumped at the chance to include this in 49 Before 50.
I have body boarded and surfed in the ocean before, however the rush and power of this water was far more intense than it is in nature. It was a little more intimidating too because all eyes were on me when I gave it a shot. Fortunately, the kids that taught me were patient and didn’t make me feel foolish. This was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to go back and do it again!
