We will be reopening on Friday 26th March 2021 after a temporary closure during the pandemic. Find out what we’re doing to get Ready for Adventure.

School Holiday Lessons & Courses

Our fun, structured, fully supervised kids surf lessons will help your child to become a competent, confident and considerate surfer as well as encouraging them to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle.

All kids’ lessons are 90-minutes, with just under one hour of water time. We teach children in age appropriate groups: Little Rippers (age 5-7) and Groms (age 8-12).

During school holidays we offer fast-track five day courses specifically aimed at helping your child progress their ability and confidence. Courses run over five consecutive days, with a 90-minute lesson each day. Total tuition time is 7.5 hours.

The Waves & Safety of Children

As well as guaranteed waves, our lagoon offers a safe, controlled environment with minimal currents and far fewer dangers than you might find in the ocean.

Parents’ Involvement

For Little Ripper lessons (children aged 5-7), a non-surfing adult MUST accompany their child in the water. Adult wetsuits are provided free of charge. All groms (age 8-12) must be watched by a non-surfing adult at the edge of the lagoon.

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 3+ Soft play is suitable for babies and toddlers up to children age 10.

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.

Our photographers are always on site to capture your session. You can view your images at the Surf Photo Hut (in the surf academy building) after your session. Buy your digital copies from £7.50 per image.

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.
