Have you ever tackled the Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii? While nothing can match the beauty and power of the original, the FlowBarrel in San Diego comes in at a close second in power at least. The FlowBarrel in San Diego is the only one in the United States and resides at the WaveHouse Beach Club. We soaked up the San Diego sun recently and gave the board shorts from Shortomatic a work out in the FlowBarrel.
The FlowBarrel has been called the mother of all artificial wave machines and we just might believe it. It is designed to make a perfect, tubing wave like those on Hawaii’s surf reef break. The FlowBarrel has challenged everyone from tourists to Olympic gold medalists.
The wave machine creates an endless barreling wave that is perfect for flowboarding. We just had to give the Shortomatic board shorts a test by tackling the San Diego FlowBarrel.
Whether you are getting sucked into the San Diego FlowBarrel, surfing in Hawaii, or just hanging out in Los Angeles, a pair of our custom board shorts from Shortomatic are the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Have you ever tackled the FlowBarrel? We would love to hear your stories in the comments below!
