Bristol could get its own surfing lake next year if plans put forward by The Wave: Bristol get the thumbs up from South Gloucestershire Council.

The £6.4m scheme includes a 300m by 150m surfing lake, which would produce 120 perfect 1.6m waves each hour. This is enough for experienced surfers to get a 20 second ride.

It would use Wavegarden technology, which apparantly feels like an ocean break. After public consultation, a swimming lake was also added.

The team behind the project wants to provide an experience which brings surfing, nature and education together. It is intended to encourage people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be outdoors, exercise, have fun and get in touch with nature.

More sites are expected to follow once this one is up and running.

Co-founder, Nick Hounsfield, says: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response from the public ever since we first started talking about the project. I think people now really understand that this is not a one-dimensional project, but it offers a range of positive opportunities which will benefit both local and wider communities.”

The council’s decision is expected at the end of March.
