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.

When these surf sessions run, there'll only be 14 people in the water on each side of the lake for an Expert session and 17 for the Advanced Plus. There are no other surfers in 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.
