Annual Locals' Pass, exclusive offers and latest jobs
Community means everything to us and that’s why we love supporting local people by offering something special to say thank you for all your support. Our Annual Locals' Pass gives people living in places with postcodes starting BS35 5, BS35 4 or BS32 4 (approximately within a mile of The Wave) access to the gardens and grounds, including our cafe-bar and shop, all year round for £15.
About the Annual Locals' Pass
As well as access to The Wave, the Annual Locals' Pass will also give local residents invitations to special events and regular special offers once we're open.
- Enjoy entry to the grounds to watch the surfing and visit the restaurant and cafe all year round for just £15 for adults, £5 for children. Under-5s free.
- Get the opportunity to sign up for one of our Locals' Preview Events to see and try The Wave and all it has to offer before it is fully open.
- Receive exclusive seasonal discounts in our cafe-bar and shop overlooking our 200m surfing lake.
Supporting local schools
You can help children locally get a chance to surf The Wave.
We're really keen that pupils from local schools get the chance to visit and enjoy learning to surf with our coaches. So for every 50 residents who buy an Annual Locals' Pass, we'll gift a surf session voucher to a local school for them to pass onto a pupil.
Find out more about our school surf lessons and educational workshops.
Seasonal offers just for locals
We will be offering seasonal deals exclusively to the local community.
One month this might be a breakfast upgrade when you book to surf or special deals in our shop, another month we might offer free ice cream after 3pm or invitations to a local feast.
When you sign up for your Annual Locals' Pass you can opt to join our Locals' Newsletter to make sure you hear about all available offers.
Locals' preview event
Before we open publicly you can sign up to one of our preview activities to see and try The Wave before it is fully operational.
This will be a chance to take a tour, meet the team and surf with your local friends and family.
Preview events will be by invitation and will require proof that you live locally – see 'How to get your Annual Locals' Pass' below.

How to get your Annual Locals' Pass
Once our Annual Locals' Pass is available, you'll be able to register at our gatehouse. The pass is for people who live around a mile from The Wave – i.e. in postcodes starting with BS35 5, BS35 4, or BS32 4.
You just need to pop in with proof of your address and our team will get everything set up for you in no time. From the day we open, your pass will be valid for one year.
Sign up to our local community mailing list. This is the best way to get updates and also find out when the Annual Locals' Pass will be on sale.
You'll need to bring one proof of identity that includes your photograph and shows your address. Examples of suitable photo ID include a driving licence or bus pass showing your current address.
No photo ID? Bring three forms of proof of residence
If you have no photo ID, we'll need three other items showing your name and address, such as recent utility bills, bank statements, a rent book or similar documents.
Proof of residency for children
- If you would like to get a Annual Locals' Pass for your children then just bring them along with you when you apply for your own pass and we'll use your proof of residence for their pass too.
Annual Locals’ Pass holders (over-16s) will be photographed upon activation of the pass. The image will be securely stored and will be used only for identification purposes when you arrive at The Wave, or to prevent misuse of the Locals’ Pass.
