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 beginners, intermediates, advanced and expert 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.

Our food brings people together

Food doesn’t just bring people together; like surfing, it also connects us to the environment we live in. We look at every aspect of our food to understand its effect on the natural world, from the animal welfare and environmental impact of producing it, to the carbon footprint of getting it to us, to the packaging of our takeaway options and how we can minimise our food waste.
