Update 6th July

Like many businesses, we are currently experiencing staff shortages, due to a number of team members having to self-isolate as a precaution. This particularly affects our Food and Drink and Customer Services teams. You can find more information here.

The Wave is the first inland-surfing destination of its kind, where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can experience the joy of surfing and its many physical and mental health benefits. But it’s not just about surfing. It’s about getting back to nature, improving health and well-being, connecting with other people, enjoying great food and drink, and having a load of fun in the process!

New Health and Safety Video and Waiver Process

You now only need to watch the Health & Safety video and sign your waiver once every 60 days. This means if you’re a frequent surfer with us you no longer have to repeat this process every time you surf.  Please note, there are different waivers for the Bay area and the Reef area of the lake and if you decide to do sessions in both areas within 60 days then you will need to sign twice.

The system will automatically let you know when it’s time to re-sign your waiver. When prompted, please make sure you watch the Health & Safety video and sign your waiver before arriving on-site. You will not be able to sign your waiver until you have watched the whole Health & Safety video. The aim of the video is to reduce the briefing time when on-site and help keep you socially distanced.
