Flowboarding is a hybrid board sport, which has been evolving since the 1980s. The sport combines the progression, maneuvers and skills from the core action sports of skateboarding, surfing, bodyboarding and snowboarding and to a lessor extent, wakeboarding and skimboarding. These boardsports have a strong influence on flowboarding’s direction, style, and energy. Amateur to top professional action sports athletes find flowboarding to be one more pumping board sport to fix their adrenaline needs, as well as an epic cross-over sport.
The disciplines of flowboarding include stand-up riding and bodyboarding. While most people start off on a bodyboard and move to stand-up riding, a lot of riders are content progressing on a bodyboard. Although the core followers are between the ages of 13 and 29 years old, there are rippers of all ages worldwide. It is truly a versatile sport for all ages that can meet the diverse needs of each of its participants. While some of the more advanced riders are driven by adrenaline and trick progression, others find enjoyment in a ride grounded in exercise. From a kickflip to a rodeo flip, flowboarding is quickly progressing and gaining traction around the globe.
