Majorca isn’t a destination that’s known for surfing, as the conditions are perfect for many water sports but you’re not likely to catch regular waves that are worthy of a champion surfer. Well, that’s all about to change with the introduction of a special Flow Barrel and a Double Flow Rider machine both hitting Magaluf’s main beach this June, giving your Magaluf holiday that extra bit of fun.
The safe conditions of the machines, which use Wave Loch technology, mean that riders will be cushioned from the kind of blows that you can receive in the sea, so it’s much easier for new surfers to build up their skills. The barrel wave created by the Flow Barrel is particularly challenging with a flow of 48km per hour, but it is sure to attract both accomplished and newer riders. Not only is surfing incredibly fun, but it’s also a great workout, particularly for the thighs and abs, so you can maintain your beach body on holiday whilst taking to the waves.
If you’re nervous about your ability then the Double Flow Rider will appeal, as it accommodates two people at a time with a flow of 32km per hour, so you can surf with a mate and see who has the best technique. There’s also a surf shop on hand to cater for your needs, as well as a swimming pool with poolside snack bar, and it can all be found in the grounds of the Hotel Sol Wave House, who will be hosting regular parties and events by the wave machines and creating the perfect summer surfing atmosphere. Guests at the Sol Wave House can also enjoy a terrace with Mediterranean Sea views, WiFi for sending those surfing photos to your friends back home, and a restaurant and bars. With the resort centre easily accessible, you’re also close to Magaluf’s legendary nightlife scene, boasting big-name clubs like BCM and Pacha. Just make sure you’ve got the stamina to take to the surf again the next day!
