leisure opportunities Green light for artificial surfing lake


An inland surfing lake is on its way to becoming a major new sporting attraction in Bristol, after the project gained planning permission. Te Wave: Bristol is a £6.4m


scheme that includes a 300m by 150m surfing lake, capa- ble of producing 120 perfect 1.6m (5.2ſt) waves per hour, with each wave big enough for an experienced surfer to ride for 20 seconds.

A CGI of how the visitor centre will appear, overlooking the surf lake


designs for the proposed site in Easter Compton, near Bristol, were strongly backed by South Gloucestershire Council, which voted nine to one in favour, with one abstention. Te 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. Around the lake will be a natural swimming lake and multifunctional gardens including an activity garden, barefoot trails,


sensory garden, healing garden, culinary gar- den, herb gardens and foraging areas. “Tis is the culmination of three years’ very


hard work and we are very excited that South Gloucestershire Council has chosen to give it the go ahead,” said Nick Hounsfield, who is one of the co-founders of Te Wave. “We believe that The Wave will have a


hugely positive impact on people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities in the local area, Bristol and further afield.” Details: http://lei.sr?a=J6s8G
