We cruised on the Freedom last summer. I did the Flowrider alot. I did a nice review of it, that has alot of useful info on it. To find it, you need to log in, then click the "Find" tab, located above the post, type in "Flowrider review". You will find my review post there. Anyother questions, that I did not answer just ask. I'll do my best to help you. By the way-if you do go on it, DON'T wear bathing suit top or bottom. The force of the water when you wipe out, pulls them off. Lots of girls with bikinis on lost them. The tops would usually pull to the side, and the bottoms would be usually be pulled down below your butt.
Many times, I saw more then I wanted too. I'm sure the young boys didn't mind, as much as the poor girl with there stuff hanging out. I had on a t-shirt that I tied in a knot at my waist, that was over my bathing suit top. For the bottoms, I wore surfing/board style shorts that had velcro. Hope this helps.
