Surf The Wave

At The Wave we have set out to create a place where people of all abilities can surf on consistent top quality waves all year round.

Find Your Wave

To help you get the most of your surfing experience with us, we invited our Ambassadors Ben Skinner - Professional Surfer and Director of Skindog Surfboards and Jenny Jones – Snowboarding Olympic Champion to experience each of wave settings along with our founder, Nick Hounsfield. We asked them to share their experience, so you can find the best wave for you.

Surfing for everyone, whatever your level

Whatever your age, fitness, learning or physical ability, we’ll help you to get the most out of your surfing and your time at The Wave.

We offer surf lessons for beginner surfers so you can improve your skills in a fun and supportive environment. They are delivered by our experienced team of qualified coaches who are down-to-earth, friendly and supportive. We also offer non-guided surf sessions for intermediate and advanced surfers who are already confident on a board and just want to catch some waves.

With a 180m long surfing lake, The Wave delivers an unrivalled inland surf experience suitable for everyone from beginner to seasoned professional. We’ve designed every aspect to ensure it is fun for all, whatever your ability. At The Wave no-one is judged – except on competition days!

Wavegarden Cove technology

Our waves are produced by Wavegarden Cove technology. This technology is groundbreaking and can generate up to 1,000 quality waves per hour, ranging from 50cm (1.7ft) to almost 2m (6.5ft) in height. We can produce a new wave every 8-10 seconds.

Importantly, the whole surfing experience has been designed to ensure each surfer has the space, time and serenity to enjoy their surf at The Wave without ever needing to contend with the crowds.

I think it's the most fun I ever had with my friends. I got so many waves and it's a good training, my legs are burning right now.
