Yas Flow League at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi Takes On a Wave of New Talent
It was aquatic antics all the way for flowboarding enthusiasts at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi’s brand new Yas Flow League.
From testing their balance and basic flowboarding skills to bodyboarding and advanced wave riding, flowboarders can learn the tricks of the trade from World Flowboarding Champion Clayton Barker, as part of a fun programme that’s open to all skill levels.
Annual pass holder Ali Al Marzooqi said the session proved to be even more fun than he had anticipated. “I’ve been on the FlowRider several times before but it was great to get some useful feedback on technique that lets me really make the most of the ride. I’ve just started training on Bubbles Barrel and it is really exhilarating to watch yourself get better with each go,” said Ali.
The Yas Flow League sessions take place at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi every Wednesday from 6:30pm-9:30pm and Saturdays from 8am-11am. Sessions include three hours of ride time with skill-based training and supervision on FlowRider and FlowBarrel, with Barker and coaches on hand to provide expert coaching to both seasoned flowboarders and those wet behind the ears.
“Everyone who signed up for the sessions was very enthusiastic and eager to learn and things have been going really well since we launched earlier this month. There’s a great deal of talent and energy amongst the flowboarders here in the UAE and we expect to get a lot of interest in the Yas Flow League,” said Clayton Barker.
