The Wave is an exciting new inland surfing destination made so that anyone and everyone can surf on safe waves, all year round. With a 200m surfing lake at its heart, it brings surfing, nature and a fresh way of thinking to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

It's first location in Bristol is set to open its doors this autumn. Vision of founder, Nick Hounsfield, he wanted to bring the joy of surfing and its many physical and mental health benefits to more people – especially those who don’t have easy access to the coast and sea.


Olympic champion snowboarder Jenny Jones has recently been swapping her snowboard for a surfboard, joining as one of The Wave’s ambassadors. In a recent talk with The Wave she spoke about how surfing has made her a better athlete, to be okay with making mistakes and the importance of the social side of surfing.
