Owner description: The Maeva Surf Experience Come and experience the most dynamic, safe and popular indoor surfing wave in the world. Come and try the one and only double FlowRider wave in Canada. This new aquatic boardsport allows you to live the thrills of snowboarding turns in powder snow combined with surfing flow, and to try new manoeuvres usually executed on a skateboard. From Abu Dhabi to Bangkok and Maui, there are 200 waves similar to ours in the world. In fact, flowboarding is the new boardsport as for the trend in action sports. Who Can Practice Indoor Surfing? Bodyboarding and flowboarding are very safe activities that are accessible to all for people of all ages can have fun on the wave. The wave surface is made of a trampoline which outlines are cushioned to ensure protection if someone has a fall. No need to wear a helmet or any other piece of protective equipment to practice these activities.

On a cold Friday night in March...surfing? Why not! My 7 and 10 year old loved it. Philippe gave easy to understand instructions and Gabriel worked really well with the kids. By the end of the session, both were surfing without a rope. Lots of fun, highly recommend this place. (They both want their birthday parties there!)

A bar / meeting space that's perfect if you're looking for something unique and fun!

Tiki hut styled bar with a Malibu feel, great patio space, DJ booth overlooking the Wave Machine where the talented instructors will have you standing & surfing within the hour!

Start on a boogie board while you get used to the wave, which rushes over a trampoline-like structure. The coaches have developed great methods to help you stand (like extending a rope to hold onto while you find your balance).

Not up to surfing? Have a drink and observe the fun from their glassed-in viewing area.

Great meeting room space available as well; this is such a memorable venue!

I booked a surf simulator lesson at maeva surf during my stay at Montreal and I was very impressed! The instructor was extremely helpful and kind to me. I was a few minutes late due to traffic and he told me not to worry and let me stay a few minutes late. I highly recommend doing this, it is loads of fun!

Like the title of this review says...how time has changed things at maeva, it was not our first time at maeva nor was the second, we have been here a few times.

My last review was the good and this one wil be the bad, just to give a heads up to everyone what to expect when you get the bad as we did.

Everyone knows coming to maeva surf its not cheap, let alone when you take the one hour course, i brought my daughter (6yrs old) and she was in a group of 6, no surprise so far, as thats the case most of the time , groups of 6...she was matched with older kids which also its ok , not alot of 6yrs go , so far so good BUT when it came to her turn to surf she never got her fair share on the surf, let me explain,
because she was young, she often fell off the board fast, so barely being on it for seconds , so instead of the teacher saying ok try again she let the other kids go so my daughter had to wait her turn again , and the other kids were good so they were staying on the surf for awhile before they fell, i was fuming and very angry, ( i won`t mention names) i felt so bad for my daughter standing there and freezing always waiting for her turn and not understanding why she wouldn`t practice longer, and to make matters worst when her turn came she was at the top then, she said she wanted to start from the bottom so the teacher said ok go ahead go down, as soon as she made it down she said sorry times up.....

Now i was so mad that i couldn`t talk to management on that day, had to let the dust settle or else it was going to get ugly. So the very next day i called and left a message to management, no returns....so again the next day i called again and left a message and again no return.

So for now this place is a hit or a miss for me, most of the teachers here are great some not, and from the looks of it management doesn`t care much since THEY don`t even return calls, too bad because they USE to be awesome and now , no more...

regards
