Surf The Wave – The Wavegarden Cove technology provides up to 1,000 waves of varying sizes and shapes an hour.  Heights start at 50cm and peak at 1.8m.

It’s a historic day for British surfing.  The ‘First Riders’ took to the first public waves to mark the official launch of The Wave in Bristol. The 180m long lake, powered by Wavegarden technology, is the first inland surfing destination of its kind in the world. The centre designed to bring the joy of surfing to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

The Wave is the brainchild of Founder, Nick Hounsfield. Nick’s vision is at the heart of this £25 million project, which has been nine years in the making. The Wave opens its doors and shores to the public on 4 November.

The Wave is not just about surfing. It’s about sharing incredible experiences with anyone who wants to enjoy them, in a naturally healthy space. It’s about improving health and wellbeing.  Helping people feel like the best version of themselves and having a shedload of fun in the process! As well as the surfing lake, there’s a Clubhouse serving food & drinks and a surf shop, As the site develops it will also offer beautiful gardens, meadowland, woodland and family-friendly camping, opening in spring 2020.
