5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Week
Running the gamut from gardening to surfing, here's what should be on our out-and-about radar this week in Phoenix.
CityScape Phoenix Catch a wave.
Surfing in Phoenix? As good as that sounds, it also sounds fantastical. Wait, it's true! Surfing on Central is all about enjoying a surfing-like adventure compliments of a cranking wave generation machine. Crazy it is -- crazy cool, fun and thrilling. Get on your best surf shorts and head over to CityScape -- to hell with the six-hour drive to the beach.
Surfing on Central features a constant "sheet wave," a sweet break similar to an ocean wave--but one that never ends. Riders drop in on custom boards and let the water carry them up and down the wave crest. Lean a little one way, and off you go. One similarity to surfing in Cali -- the wipeouts are awesome, dude.
Surfing on Central beckons from 10 a.m.to 5 p.m. Monday, August 4, at CityScape, One East Washington Street. Tickets are $10 for a 30-minute session. Assorted memberships and private sessions are available. Visit www.cityscapephoenix.com/flowrider. -- Glenn BurnSilver
