    FAQ's

    You will get around 55 minutes in the water. Surf lessons are 90 mins in total with approx. 30 mins of that spent on dry side instruction and five minutes for changeover. Waves sessions are one hour, including a short five minute safety briefing. We recommend that you arrive at least 45 minutes in advance of your wave session to allow plenty of time to check in and change.

    For any water-based activity we recommend that you should be able to swim at least 50 metres unaided. You should be happy and confident in the water. Please ensure any children in your care meet these criteria too.

    Our lagoon generates man-made waves every 90 seconds. To simplify a little bit, an underwater snowplough runs along rails under water in the middle of the lagoon. It creates a consistently powerful dynamic wave. Clever hydrodynamics mean that it simultaneously generates several different wave profiles: beginner, intermediate and advanced. All of the moving parts are enclosed by a mesh tunnel under the central pontoon.

    The water temperature varies according to the season. You might expect 8 degrees in March and 20 degrees in August. We recommend winter-weight wetsuits, boots, hoods and gloves in cooler months. Our wetsuit hire is seasonally appropriate.

    Booking in advance is highly recommended. Please do not travel to surf with us unless you have checked availability.

    We have three different sizes of waves that all run simultaneously in distinct areas of the lagoon. An over-head ‘advanced’ wave, a waist-high ‘intermediate’ wave and the knee-high ‘beginner’ waves.

    Surfers on the advanced waves work on a rotation basis (three surfers per advanced wave section, so each surfer catches every third wave) and the wave runs every 90 seconds. Surfers in the beginner bays and on the intermediate waves will get every other wave.

    We offer surfing from age 5+. Children aged 5-7 must be accompanied in the water by a non-surfing adult. Adrenaline Indoors activities from age 5+ Explore Outdoors activities from age 7+ Soft play is suitable for babies and toddlers up to children age 7.

    No, our waves are made out of pure Welsh rain water. We draw our water from reservoirs in the Carneddau mountains above the Conwy Valley. It passes through a neighbouring hydroelectricity plant before filling our lagoon.

    We offer seasonally appropriate wetsuits for hire at £6 per day.

    For practical reasons you cannot wear glasses / spectacles in the water – they would be washed away by the waves. If you can’t surf without glasses, we recommend you ask your optician about getting some prescription goggles in advance of your visit.

    Yes! We offer glamping accommodation, with each glamping pod sleeping up to four people in two single beds and one double. Delicious food and drink is served up in our surf-side diner, cafes and bar from 8am every morning.
