Opening times and prices


The Wave will be opening in the next few weeks. We will be open seven days a week, every day of the year except Christmas Day, which makes it easy to come at a time to suit you, whether you are coming on your own, with friends or family.

Opening times

When we open in November our site opening hours will be 7am-8pm. Surfing is available during daylight hours and this will vary across the different seasons.

Our surfing session times vary throughout the year due to changes in seasonal daylight hours. Please see below.

Everything included in the price

All our surf prices include entry to The Wave and everything you need, such as wetsuit, boots and the perfect surfboard for your session.

We always recommend surfing with a lesson if you are a beginner or intermediate surfer who hasn’t visited The Wave before.

In our beginner lessons you’ll learn how to surf in a fun, supportive environment and once you’re in the water, we’ll be with you all the way as you catch your first waves. If you’re an intermediate surfer we’ll coach you to improve your technique and boost your confidence so you can start catching bigger waves.

We also offer surf sessions without lessons for intermediate and advanced surfers who are already confident on a board and just want to catch some waves.
