CityScape Phoenix
Catch a wave.
Running the gamut from gardening to surfing, here's what should be on our out-and-about radar this week in Phoenix.

Surfing on Central

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
