Surf’s up — just south of Bristol

THIS incredible footage shows England’s first-ever inland surfing lake, which can deliver up to 1,000 perfect waves an hour.

The Wave officially opens to the public tomorrow after a nine-year wait and a £25million investment.

The cutting-edge lake design, filled with 26million litres of water, pumps out a wave peaking at more than 6ft every eight to ten seconds.

Sessions at The Wave, located near the hamlet of East Compton, south of Bristol, will cost £40-45 for an adult and £30-35 for a child depending on the time of year and day of the week.

The breathtaking project is the brainchild of Nick Hounsfield, who teamed up with engineering company Wavegarden to bring the idea to life.

He said: ‘I wanted to create a place where anyone and everyone can surf on safe waves, all year round, and experience the many mental and physical health benefits it offers.’

Another site, The Wave London, is planned for Lee Valley Regional Park in 2023.

Surfing will make its debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
