Advanced Plus and Expert surf sessions

For advanced surfers these sessions offer a range of new punchier and more powerful waves. They provide a greater challenge and the opportunity to really up your game.

Expert surfing experiences

Our Advanced Plus and our Expert surf sessions are a step up from our current advanced settings and will offer the chance to try out something new.

Based on your feedback we've made some changes to our Expert surf session. From 4th November 2021 you can choose from either an Expert Turning Waves Session or an Expert Barrel Session.

We have also changed the capacity in our expert sessions from 14 surfers, to 12 surfers in the Expert Barrel Session and 17 on the Expert Turning waves session on each side of the lake. Advanced Plus remains the same capacity with 17 surfers on each side of the lake.

There are no other surfers in the other areas of the lake at all.

During this time, we’d recommend that those surfing on the Advanced Plus and Expert Session bring their own wetsuit and surfboard if they have them.
