FlowRider is Dreamworld's newest attraction - the first FlowRider in Australia.
The attraction is best summed us as a stationary wave which riders can surf or bodyboard on.
The sport has been described as a combination of surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding and skating, with skills from each coming in handy.
To celebrate the launch of FlowRider, a handful of Australia's brightest young stars in each sport were brought in to give it a go to see which sport comes out on top.
As well as this, some of the world's leading Flowboarders came along to show how it's really done.
Hawaii's Sean Barnes was up first, ranked the best Flowboarder in the US.
Also Melbourne's Adam Murray (formerly South Africa) gave it a crack, as an expert flowboarder and kiteboarder.
Even on overcast days like this FlowRider is heated to a toasty 27º.
