Mesa FlowRider Event: Tempe Versus Mesa Police, Fire & Medical

In a duel of the cities, the Mesa Police Department and Mesa Fire & Medical Department has challenged the City of Tempe Police and Fire Medical Rescue Department to a FlowRider competition to raise money for the 100 Club of Arizona. They’re calling it the “Desert Wave Invitational” and it’s sponsored by Mesa City Council Member Ryan Winkle.

The public is welcome to join in the festivities with a free open swim for families. The event takes place on Saturday April 29th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Mesa’s Rhodes Aquatic Center, located at 1860 S. Longmore Drive.

If you’ve never seen or heard of a FlowRider, it’s a special water attraction that creates stationary artificial waves, powered by pumps that push out a steady 3-inch layer of water at about 20-30 miles per hour. The FlowRider┬«crosses snowboarding, skateboarding, and wakeboarding into an exciting ride.

The event will include a raffle featuring prizes donated by the East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the Mesa and Tempe Chambers of Commerce. Attendees may enjoy free hamburgers and hot dogs cooked by the Mesa Fire & Medical Department and refreshments courtesy of Boulders on Southern and Boulders on Broadway. The raffle benefits the 100 Club of Arizona, a statewide nonprofit that provides immediate financial assistance to families of public safety officers and firefighters who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty,
and provides resources to enhance their safety and welfare.

For more information about the event contact Jared Archambault at (480) 644-6265 or via email at


For almost 50 years, the 100 Club has provided assistance to statewide public safety agencies, officers, firefighters, EMT/Paramedics, and their families. The 100 Club supports all city, county, state, federal and tribal public safety agencies, fire services, probation, corrections, parole and law enforcement departments who provide for the safety of the citizens of Arizona.
