Be the first to surf our new wave settings

Be the first to test our new turning and barrel wave sessions during the last few weeks of Warm Up. For advanced surfers these Experience Days offer a range of new punchier and more powerful waves. They will provide a greater challenge and the opportunity to really up your game while giving us feedback about the settings.

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.
