The FlowRider: Catch A Wave
Read More >


With over 320 days of sunshine, you can swim year-round in Mesa. If you're staying in Mesa, most likely your hotel has a great swimming pool to enjoy. Throughout the city you will also find that Mesa's public pools are perfect for visiting families. Or maybe you want to make some waves and surf the desert on Mesa's Flowrider. 

The FlowRider® crosses snowboarding, skateboarding, and wakeboarding into an exciting ride with plenty of challenges and a whole lot of FUN! The best part is that ANYONE can do it. Even someone with no experience can jump on a boogie board and almost instantly start carving and doing tricks. The best part is that there is always something new to learn, you will NEVER get bored with the FlowRider®!
