Site reopening 3rd December 2020

We are very pleased to announce that we will be reopening on Thursday 3 December with our first Big Thursday. Following the latest updates from the Government we are able to open for surfing lessons and sessions again.

As South Gloucestershire and Bristol are in Tier 3 we will be operating in line with the restrictions for this Tier. Our café will be open for takeaway food and drink only and we can’t provide a space for you indoors, make sure you wrap up warm. Please check here for Government guidance in your area and what this means for you.

We know some of you may have questions and the team will be responding to these by email as quickly as they can, but please bear with us at this busy time.

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, however we do understand that you might want to bring your own.

We always recommend surfing with a lesson if you are a beginner or a 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. 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.

We're very proud of our equipment but if do have your own wetsuit and surfboard as an intermediate and advanced surfer, we do encourage you to use these during this time.

Performance hardboards, £10 hire charge

Please note, should you wish to use our performance hardboards, we have a charge of £10, payable on the day, on site.

You can find out more about what items we are unable to allow on the lake on our equipment page.
