The Wave Bristol will be a place that brings surfing, outdoor water based activities and its many benefits to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. At the heart of our plans is a surfing lake powered by the latest wave-making technology by Wavegarden called “The Cove”. This will sit in beautiful gardens – spaces where people can relax and recoup, get back in touch with nature, play, learn and explore. 
The plans include sensory gardens, healing gardens, activity areas, peaceful hideaways and kitchen gardens, as well as a natural swimming pool, café, changing facilities, accommodation, education centre and retail experience. We will also be home to a High Performance Surf Centre that will help develop and support surfing athletes in preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The project has surfing at its heart but there will be so much more… We want this space to help educate and inspire people on a whole range of topics, from marine conservation to science and technology. We want it to inspire healthier lifestyles and to make a positive social impact on the lives of those who visit or interact with us. We want to use The Wave as a place to showcase the use of renewable energy and sustainable building techniques. Most importantly, we want to do all of this whilst having a huge amount of fun in the process.
We are preparing for work on site imminently and aim to be open 2018.

We are on an incredible journey and we would love you to join us

…making waves of positive change.
