Advanced Plus Surf Session

Our Advanced Plus wave is a step up from our other wave settings for those experienced surfers who are looking to challenge themselves. 

During this session there will only be 17 in the water on each side of the lake and no other surfers, such as beginner lessons, in the lake at all.

This session is for some of our most advanced surfers, you must have a high level of surf skill to surf the Advanced Plus wave.  

Our team of professional photographers are on site everyday and capture all sessions in The Reef. Find out more and view your photos here.

Advanced Plus Wave

Advanced plus wave: A full faced wave on take off, which holds good shape and size all the way down the line. Its inside barrel section is easy to pre-empt and stays open with a fun, open face to manoeuvre.

Surfers can book ‘the left’ or ‘the right’ for their session, the waves are perfectly mirrored either side of the pier;

The Right: Is a righthander to the right of the pier as viewed from shore, which will be forehand for ‘regular’ stance and backhand for goofy stance.

The Left: Is a lefthander to the left of the pier as viewed from shore, which will be backhand for ‘regular’ stance and forehand for ‘goofy’ stance.

Surfers stay on their booked side for the duration of the session, with no switching, for safety reasons and to ensure surfers maximise their time in the lake.

You must arrive at least 60 minutes before your surf session

You must watch a Health & Safety video and sign a waiver before you surf with us, please ensure you do this before arriving on-site. After your first visit, you will only need to sign your waiver once every 60 days. The system will automatically notify you when it is time to sign your waiver, please ensure you do this before you arrive on-site. You must watch the whole Health & Safety video before you can sign your waiver, this is to reduce the briefing time when on-site and help keep you socially distanced.

Surfing and bodyboarding are physically challenging and carry risks that we cannot entirely eliminate. Have a look at our Health & Safety information and find out how to surf safely here.
