The Wave Bristol is a slice of the ocean inland. Where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can experience the joy of waves and their many physical and mental health benefits. It’s about getting back to nature, improving health and well-being, connecting with other people, enjoying wonderful food and drink, immersing yourself in an incredible day out and having a load of fun in the process! 

Our Story

At The Wave we believe our business can be a force for good. In order to do this we are careful with our decision-making, challenge our thinking and always consider the balance and trade-offs to be made. We consider the effect of our decisions on our profit, the people around us and the planet we share.

Before The Wave even had a name it had a loyal band of supporters. These are the incredible group of Wavemakers who surfed with us, backed us with crowdfunding, shared our story on social media and motivated us every step of the way.
