Press & media FAQs
What is The Wave?
The Wave is an inland surf destination that allows people to surf on consistent safe waves all year round without going to the sea. There is a 180m surfing lagoon that delivers an unrivalled inland surf experience suitable for everyone from the beginner to the seasoned professional.
Who started The Wave?
The Wave is the brainchild of our founder Nick Hounsfield . Working with CEO, Craig Stoddart, they want to provide naturally healthy spaces, where people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, can surf all year round on consistent waves. The Wave is about improving health and wellbeing through surfing and having a shed load of fun in the process.
What technology is used?
With a 180m long surfing lake, The Wave delivers an unrivalled inland surf experience suitable for everyone from beginner to seasoned professional. We’ve designed every aspect to ensure it is fun for all, whatever your ability. At The Wave no-one is judged – except on competition days! Our Wavegarden cove technology is groundbreaking and can generate up to 1,000 quality waves per hour, ranging from 50cm (1.7ft) to almost 2m (6.5ft) in height. On our day-to-day setting there will be a new wave every 8-10 seconds. Importantly, the whole surfing experience has been designed to ensure each surfer has the space, time and serenity to enjoy their surf at The Wave without ever needing to contend with the crowds.

We are experienced in dealing with film production companies, agencies and producers and The Wave is able to offer all-year-round consistent waves in a beautiful setting, making it an ideal location for many filming productions and photoshoots.
