Perfect Surf at The Wave
March 2020

The Wave is a world class inland surfing lake set in the Gloucestershire countryside on the outskirts of Bristol. One thousand waves per hour are created artifically in the lake - perfect surf for professionals and beginners alike.

Timber was specified for many areas of the project and high performance decking suppliers, Gripsure, worked closely with designers to specify a suitable product - Gripsure Pro Classic boards.

These Tanalith preservative treated Scandinavian V grade European Redwood boards feature three non-slip inserts for maximum safety as the surfers transition from dry and wet zones.

The boards were installed on the central pier, club house terrrace and boardwalks and seating areas in the nature reserve.

The Wave project has been entered into the WPA Awards 2020 for Best Treated Wood Project of the Year.
