Mall Wonder

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 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

Mondays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sundays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Starts: July 22. Continues through Aug. 31, 2014
