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 200m 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?
Our Wavegarden cove technology is groundbreaking and will generate up to a thousand quality waves per hour, ranging from 50cms to almost 2m in height. With the potential to host over 80 people at the same time, The Wave has six different surfing zones that offer waves of different size and power specifically designed to provide ideal conditions for everyone, from professionals to newcomers picking up a surfboard for the very first time. The technology used ensures there are no problems with overcrowding, noisy mechanics or hanging around for a wave. Surfing one hour at The Wave is the equivalent to four hours in the sea.
