The Wave

The Wave is an inland surfing destination near Bristol which exists to enable people of all ages the opportunity to surf. It’s powered by Wavegarden Cove technology, which produces waves for all abilities – from a child to a pro surfer training for the Olympics. As well as the 180m surfing lake, it also has a cafe bar, surf shop, and accommodation in 25 glamping tents. Founder Nick Hounsfield and chief executive Craig Stoddart opened their first park in 2019, and this year, the company announced plans to build six more venues across the UK and Ireland.
