What is Mixed Wave Flowrider?

Recommended Posts

Looking at a cruise compass and it has - Boogie Boarding, Stand up Surfing, and Mixed Wave.  Just wondering what Mixed Wave means?

Pretty sure this is what they call it when they split the Flowrider into two sides with a  separator in the middle to let two people ride at once.  Not sure how they split the sides between stand-up, boogie board, or beginner/advanced.

You can choose what you want to ride - stand up or boogie board.

That only happens during boogie boarding sessions.

As I suspected, when its your turn, you can choose to stand up or boogie board.

If the separator is in use I walk on by.

     Well if it an oasis class ship then there are two flow riders. One side of the ship will be standing and the other side is boogie boarding. They will put a center area in to allow two lines for one flow rider. 

     Now if you are on a ship with just one, they will have times for boogie boarding and stand up. They will not allow two areas of stand up.

This is on Liberty of the Seas.  I see times for Boogie Boarding, Stand up Surfing and Mixed Wave.  Trying to figure out what Mixed Wave is.

Thanks, I got two different answers - Where you can choose boogie board or stand up, AND someone also said it is where they split it in half.  Not sure which is correct.

When they put in a divider on the wave, its for boggie only.  They can double their guest capacity.

 

A Mixed session is for both boggie and standup - you choose what you want.

 

Mixed sessions are mostly done on ships with one flowrider during slow times, like mornings when in port and most guests have gone ashore.

Yup. We have a winning answer.

As others have correctly responded (entire wave surface is open without a divider and you get to choose if you want to do stand up or ride boogie board).  Additional info though - you decide when you get to the front of the line each time which activity you would like to do.  However, to do try stand up, you must have a different band on your wrist (you used to get this by just signing a different waiver, however, it has been reported the past few months that you must "pass a boogie board test" before they will permit you to have a stand up band now - even if you have been riding stand up for a decade).

That is crazy... what does one have to do with the other?

 

Lawyers, good grief.

Correct... they did this on Explorer last month.

Had to boogie board first (blue), then you got the (white) stand-up wristband.
