Breaking News ! The Wave is back. Bristol's inland surfing lake opened last November but has been closed since March due to coronavirus. But the unique attraction is up and running again today. (August 1, 2020) The Wave founder Nick Hounsfield The Wave Founder, Nick Hounsfield, said: “Having to close our doors days before the Easter holidays, and on the cusp of our first peak season, was gutting. "It is properly exciting to now finally have a reopening date.

"We are currently bringing our brilliant team off furlough and are all working hard to get ready for a summer of surfing.” Hair-raising stuff Changes for social distancing In line with Government Guidance and social distancing measures, The Wave has changed a number of things about the way it operates. These include: Managing the numbers visiting at any one time Reducing the number of surfers in beginner lessons to five plus a coach Maximising the use of the spacious grounds with plenty of socially distanced seating Read More Related Articles Studios and parks in Bristol where you can attend a fitness class in person Riding high Increasing the frequency of cleaning key areas such as changing rooms and toilets Putting a new ‘one way’ system in place to change the way people move around the site Locating plenty of hand sanitizer points around the site, which staff will ask people to use Surfers need to pre-book A major change is that all visitors, including non-surfers, must pre-book in order to visit. This is to allow the team to manage numbers across the site and make sure social distancing is maintained at all times. Also, anyone experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, will be asked to postpone their surf to a future date, allowing for quarantine periods as advised by the Government. Making a splash Pop up food outlets Nick said: “We are an outdoor destination with plenty of space around the surfing lake and further afield. "We have now opened up the paths and green areas around the site and added more socially distanced seating, allowing people to easily find their own space to settle and enjoy their visit. "We have also added more ‘pop up’ food outlets in the grounds, so people can enjoy a delicious al fresco bite to eat after their surf!” Getting going nicely All abilities catered for From this month surf slots will be available from 7am until 8pm.

. Beginner lessons will be limited with group sizes reduced to just five people per coach, as per Government guidelines – lessons will be available every day from 8.30am until 5.30pm, with slots opening up based on demand. First destination of its kind in the world Open all year round, The Wave is located in a rural site on the edge of Bristol, close to the M5. It’s the first inland surfing destination of its kind in the world, powered by Wavegarden Cove technology, which provides up to 1,000 waves of varying sizes and shapes an hour. Heights start at 50cm and peak at 1.8m. Every aspect of the surfing experience, from perfect waves and supportive coaching, to tried and tested wetsuits and boards, has been designed to ensure that surfing really is fun for all – from a child stepping on a board for the first time, to a pro surfer training for the Olympics. The Wave team says the venue is not just about surfing. It’s about sharing incredible experiences in a naturally healthy space. And they say it’s about improving health and well-being, helping people feel like the best version of themselves and having a shedload of fun along the way.
