Opening Times

Entrance to the The Wave inland surfing lake in Bristol

Winter Opening Hours

During the winter we’re open Thursday – Sunday up to the winter school holidays when we will be open every day, apart from Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Where we have demand, we are also open on certain Wednesday’s throughout the Winter. We have released limited sessions on Wednesday 1st and 8th December. Keep a close eye on our social media to see if we release more. 

We will be closed from 4th January 2022 for a few weeks to carry out some routine maintenance to our incredible Wave Garden technology. We’ll be aiming to get the waves back up and rolling around mid-February and we’ll update on progress once we are into the program.

Important: if you are coming for a surf, you need to be on site at least 60 minutes before your surf session starts.

All visitors must pre-book, even if you’re not surfing. If you’re just coming to visit, you can buy a spectator pass for £2 here.

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