The FLOW Tour Comes to Solara Resort


This post originally appeared on the Solara Resort Clubhouse blog. Melrose Lifestyle Services is proud to manage the Clubhouse amenities and events for Solara Resort.

What a month! In the past 30 days, Solara Resort was privileged to host several exciting events in the Clubhouse. From birthdays to graduations, we’ve been having a great time utilizing our facilities to their fullest potential. That said, our FlowRider Pro/Am competition last week undoubtedly ranks as our most epic recent special event.

Around 40 riders, some from across the country, converged on Solara on May 11th to participate in what turned out to be a truly fun-filled and memorable contest. With a ton of varied prizes and coveted titles -and the bragging rights that go with them- up for grabs, flow and body boarders of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds engaged in a fierce but friendly bout to determine the best of the best.

Adam Muller of FlowRider® was onsite to help oversee and facilitate the proceedings, and we had a ton of unique FlowRider-inspired merchandise on sale as well. Our DJ, Aaron Haase, and our outdoor grill, staffed by our friends at Solstice Bar & Grille, really kicked the festivities up a notch. There’s nothing like a big cheeseburger or condiment coated hot dog to get the competitive juices flowing.

Renowned rider Brad Spencer took top prize in the esteemed Pro Men’s Flowboard category, with Solara FlowClub member Theo Koby and Solara Flow instructor Joel Stevens taking the second and third spots respectively. Joel also placed first in the particularly heated Pro Open Bodyboard contest, with pro boarders Jon Reese and Nick Sanchez hot on his heels in the second and third place spots. Oro Valentin edged out a win over another Solara Flow instructor Jay Lorenzano in the Men’s Bodyboard bracket, followed by Eli Weeks in third. Other first place winners that day included Zak Shub in Men’s Flowboards, Nicole Cantalupo in Female Bodyboards, Vanessa Arroyo in Female Flowboards, Ken Howell in Master’s Bodyboards, Eddi Ens in Master’s Flowboards, Jeffery Howell in Junior Bodyboards, Nate Newman in Junior Flowboards, Jeffery Howell in Youth Bodyboards and Luke Newman in Youth Flowboards. Prizes that day included monetary rewards, merch bags and even a board. While not everyone could be a winner that day, we trust that every competitor learned a ton by observing and joining in the tournament.

While Solara thanks its dedicated staff and our many sponsors for their help in making the Pro/Am competition a resounding success, we would be remiss not to single out our title sponsor Global Resort Homes for providing us with the bulk of the resources necessary to carry out our event. Spectators and riders alike were thrilled to participate in Global’s raffle that day and to learn about Global’s high quality services from Candice and Frankie after playing a round of cornhole or spike ball while awaiting the next Pro/Am heat. There is no question Solara’s first FlowRider Pro/Am contest would not have been possible without the generous patronage of Global Resort Homes and other sponsors like them.

The Solara family couldn’t be happier with the outcome of May 11th’s FlowRider tournament. We’re so excited to follow it up with other similarly large scale and successful events this summer. Be sure to follow the Solara Resort’s Facebook and Instagram pages so that you can keep abreast of future proceedings here. Who knows? With a little practice, you may be ready to enter our next FlowRider competition here at Solara Resort!
