Frequently Asked Questions

Indoor Surfing – it’s new. We know you’ve probably got questions. Below are some of the most common but if you want to know more just come down and check it out for yourself and watch others in action or get in touch via email, phone or on social.


I’ve never surfed before, is it for beginners?

Absolutely. Aloha Surfhouse is by far the worlds easiest place to find your feet on a surfboard – because it keeps rolling! Our Surfstream™ wave machine has 3 different settings – The River Wave setting gives even the most novice of surfer a boost in confidence by allowing extended time on a board.

How many people can ride at a time?

We offer 30 minute sessions with up to 12 riders rotating through. Only 2 riders will be on the wave at any time unless you’ve booked out the wave and then it’s up to you!

Is it safe?

SurfStream® can be adjusted and operated to provide a high degree of safety for almost anyone with or without padding or helmets. Slow water speeds and a deep cushion of water are keys to safety as well as our trained operators. Your skill needs to increase with wave size and speed.

Like your local skate park, Aloha Surfhouse may require helmets be worn for stand up surfing…while bodyboarding and bodysurfing protective gear is not needed.

Does it feel like a Flow Rider?

Flowriders are like skimboarding – because you’re riding on few inches of water.

Aloha is more like true surfing – because both the depth and wave shapes allow you to use a board with fins, trim and turn. Fins create stability, meaning – they give you something to pivot off, turn and learn.

Once I’m up and riding, how long can I rip it for?

You can ride our waves longer than any wave you’ve ridden before. Either fatigue or trying something rad will end your turn…a much better way to end than the wave simply stopping. Shred…get rolled…then watch your friends have a go.

Apart from the wave pool, what else is at Aloha Surfhouse?

We’ll also have a fashion boutique, a coffee shop, yoga and indoor adventure climbing.

What is the age range to surf the wave?

We welcome almost any age groups to ride with us at Aloha Surfhouse. Under 18s will need a parent or guardian to complete their waiver.

If I don’t want to surf, do I have to pay to watch?

No. Anyone can watch for free at any time.
